58% of UK employees, according to new research from TravelPerk, the fastest-growing global travel management platform, believe that meeting in person is crucial because it fosters a sense of team belonging. Additionally, 43% believe it fosters creativity and productivity. The study, which investigates hybrid working arrangements, is based on a sample of 1,000 UK workers who do either home or office work.

According to a study by TravelPerk, 80% (or 79) of UK employees are either somewhat or very satisfied with their company’s current work model. 42% of the 69% of UK workers who are required to work a certain number of days per week or month say they would not make any changes. In contrast, 30% of people say they are generally content but wish they had more flexibility, 23% would prefer to spend less time at work, and 3% would prefer to spend more time there. According to the survey, 28% of UK workers work five days per week from the office, compared to 9%, 22%, 32%, and 16% of workers who work four, three, or two days per week.

According to Avi Meir, CEO of TravelPerk, “Technology will never replace the magic and energy that exists when people get together in person.” The meetings that matter take place in person, which is why so many businesses are eager to encourage employees to return to the office and why many employees are embracing it.

The study found that 46% of UK employees who work in hybrid roles prefer this working arrangement because they commute less, followed by 43% of respondents who prefer hybrid roles because they can balance their personal and professional lives. Because they are more productive (34%), like the balance between time spent at home and interacting with coworkers at the office (29%), find it has a positive impact on their mental and physical health (27%), and are at ease with their workstation setup (15%), UK employees also value the hybrid working model. Better team communication (8%) and a better working relationship with the boss (7%), according to respondents, are additional arguments in favor of the hybrid working model.

“The survey demonstrates that our need for in-person connections is ingrained in who we are as people. These genuine connections allow for meaningful interactions, commercial opportunities, and team success tales—all things that are essential for businesses to succeed. That is why TravelPerk was created,” Meir said.
