85% of employers in the legal sector suggested that working from home will limit career prospects


There’s a general air of reluctance from office workers across the legal sector to head back into the workplace.
And it's no wonder after a global pandemic.

The legal sector is one which values the benefits of working in an office environment more than any other industry. However, as our data demonstrates, the general consensus is that office workers don’t expect to return to the workplace full time. So how can employers encourage people back into the workplace in this environment?

Modern office design ideas: Hogan Lovells, Birmingham by Unispace

Following from the main report, The Reluctant Returner launched late last year, we take a deeper dive into the reluctance to return in the legal sector. With little research to date, Unispace embarked on a robust survey of over 3,000 employees and 2,750 employers across Europe, to understand the true motivations behind why employees are reluctant to return to the office.

Our research uncovers how to tackle this latest challenge employers are facing. Key insights include work/life balance, salary expectations, bonuses and promotions, commuting, mental and physical wellbeing, lockdown habits, familial responsibilities and most importantly: how employees truly feel about their office design.
