More than half of employers expect to receive more flexible working requests as the UK comes out of the pandemic, a survey has found.

A YouGov poll of more than 2,000 senior decision makers in UK companies, conducted on behalf of Acas, found 55 per cent expected an increase in the number of staff working remotely for part of the week.

Half of those polled (49 per cent) said they expected more staff to work remotely all week.

Acas has published the findings alongside new guidance for businesses on how to implement hybrid practices in a fair and transparent way.

The conciliation service recommends employers consult widely with staff about introducing hybrid working on issues including health and safety, performance management and the use of technology.

It also advises employers to avoid excluding remote workers from workplace opportunities including training and learning and development.
