About the show

After a year of Zoom calls, countless hours sat in a makeshift home office, and less time stuck in commuter traffic, what does the future of work look like? Will ‘hybrid working’ reign supreme? And would WFH actually be better for the planet? In this Which? investigation Greg Foot suggests that with some offices down-sizing and fewer of us travelling to work the eco-benefits could be huge, but soon learns that it’s much more complex than he thought.
