Meanwhile in March, Colliers’ global Workplace Advisory team had launched the first global ‘Work-from-Home’ experience survey. It was the time when, employees were immediately getting into the new normal. 

The aim of the survey was to understand how people are experiencing working from home and to identify potential medium and long-term impacts. There are few other aspects that the survey focused on:

- As many as 40 percent of the respondents indicated that productivity did not change since working from home. 

- As many as 32 percent indicated productivity increased since working from home and 28 percent indicated productivity decreased. 

- Also, after the pandemic it would be a combination of work choices and space options.

The new normal will only create a new balance, with focus on flexibility”, said Arnab Ghosh, National Director, Fit-out at Colliers International India.
