The newfound rights of pandemic workers left an indelible mark. The decision to better balance work and life and forego work travel was a fortunate connection in a volatile time, and many employees have no plans to return. People want to work from home more than ever before. According to LinkedIn data, 1.18 percent of UK paid remote jobs on LinkedIn received 1.28 percent of all job applications in March 2020. By March 2022, 13.31 percent of paid LinkedIn jobs in the United Kingdom had received more than a fifth of all applications (22.92 percent). Western Europe and the United States face similar issues. More workers have needed home-based jobs in recent months. For the first time, remote work accounted for 50 percent of LinkedIn applications in February 2022.
