After the start of the pandemic in 2020, many people in the world were working from home (WFH). Of course, many of them had to do so and there was no choice at the time. This is because many countries imposed strict restrictions on our movement to combat the spread of the virus. In fact, there was no vaccine and we did not know how to manage it. Therefore, it seemed reasonable that we just reduce our social contacts each other. It worked as a result.

A recent report by NFON titled “Working from Home 2022” revealed some intriguing findings. The study was conducted across different EU countries, but here are the main takeaways for Spain. The benefits are clear.

  • 76% point out they save money by spending less on public transport, fuel, lunch and others.
  • 36% state WFH has increased time with their family.
