BLUFSurvey results HILDA (Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia) confirm that working from home is widespread, is probably here to stay but that it can be discriminatory towards women
This article from The Conversation makes these points about the recent HILDA survey on working from home:
- The proportion of Australians working “most hours” from home jumped from 6% before the pandemic to 24% in 2021.
- Women with children were generally positive about working from home.
- Women still do more home and care work than men.
- If men spend more time in the workplace, they are more likely to be promoted and get extra responsibilities.
