Seventy percent of home workers would like to work from home more in the future than before the corona crisis. But their workplace at home often leaves a lot to be desired.

Trade union CNV last month polled the opinion about working from home among three thousand members. 45 percent of employees expect to make online appointments that would normally take place outside the home after the crisis. The workplace at home appears to be a bottleneck. "A laptop on the kitchen table, a bad office chair, not a good working posture, mouse arms: it is high time that employers develop a structural policy for this, because working from home is the future," said CNV chairman Piet Fortuin from Drachten.

“With children playing and partners on the phone, it is sometimes quite a challenge to work from home. The longer the corona crisis lasts, the more people are looking for a quiet environment to work undisturbed, ”says Olivier Kruger, co-initiator of the VoorDeThuis workers.nl platform.
