Zoomshock is a dynamic animated video created by Humanstudio highlighting research by Dr Jesse Matheson, Department of Economics, into the societal effects of remote working. How will working from home change our cities?
The pandemic has had many implications for the UK and other countries. However, the profound impact of the pandemic on how and where we work could have far-reaching implications for the economy. Specifically, the amount of work done from home has increased from below 6% in 2019 to more than 25% in the first half of 2022. This translates into thousands of workers not going into their city centre office and not purchasing coffee, food and retail at the local businesses that serve daily commuters.
What do these changes mean for you? Through this research project find out how working from home has and will continue to reshape our cities and our local economies.
