The Toro team.

He said: ‘After lockdown, the way of working changed drastically, meaning a lot of people preferred the new way of working and a lot more people would choose working from home over an office.

‘We were surprised by these results as it has been widely publicised that working from home is a much more favoured style of working, but our results found the opposite.’

According to the team, a positive work environment consists of a good relationship with fellow colleagues, good facilities, motivating conversations and having successes celebrated.
