The Corona Virus pandemic has changed the way we work on a global scale. The Mature Workers During COVID-19 Survey asked 1583 mature Australian workers how their work has changed as a result of COVID-19. Overall:
- 20% more respondents are working from home, compared to pre-COVID times
- Education & Training reported the highest number of employee redeployments, followed by Retail and Health Care Services
- 46% of employees who are working from home, would like to do so more often in the future
Mature workers who were redeployed reported feeling less vulnerable to contracting COVID-19, and less age bias than their colleagues who were not redeployed as a result of the pandemic.
