In the survey of 3,000 UK employees by Purple CV also found the concerns were highest in the West Midlands (50%) and London (48%) but lowest in Scotland (31%)

Andrew Arkley, owner of, said: “Though it may appear inclusive for companies to introduce hybrid workplace models, it should be taken into account the various ways in which the pandemic has affected employees – as well as their families – both mentally and in their daily lives.
