The proportion of employees working from home in Germany has fallen slightly. This is according to a monthly ifo Institute survey. It found that in August, the proportion of employees who worked from home at least part of the time fell from 25.5 percent to 23.8 percent. “As the number of vaccinated people increases, more and more employees are returning to the office. However, the drop in people working from home in August is less pronounced than in previous months. This indicates that the proportion is likely to stabilize at a level higher than before the pandemic,” says Oliver Falck, Director of the ifo Center for Industrial Organization and New Technologies.
