A MAN from Wokingham has said that working from home makes working life easier after figures suggest half the UK workforce are will be working remotely by 2020.

41-year-old Matt Grigg and his partner Katherine recently upsized to their new five-bedroom home at Crest Nicholson Nightingale Fields in Arborfield Green.

They purchased the bigger house to meet the needs of the family but also to find a better home office space.

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) have revealed that the number of UK workers who have moved into remote-working has increased by nearly a quarter of a million over a decade.

Matt believes staying at home will enable him to work better.

He said: “It would offer me the chance to work more effectively from home and my work life is better and our home structure runs more smoothly too.”

He works as a regional technical manager for a leading motor company with flexible working hours and Matt believes he has been able to make the most of this 'massive benefit’.

He added: “I prefer working from home as it avoids the day-to-day distractions of the office.”

Matt now really enjoys working at home in his workspace.

The ONS suggest that half the UK workforce are expected to be working remotely by 2020.
