The Telegraph talks to City bosses who say they expect working from home to continue indefinitely after the pandemic accelerated the remote working revolution. Peter Harrison, chief executive of Schroders, said he thought “we've gone forward 20 years in terms of people's understanding of flexible working” while Direct Line CEO Penny James tells the paper she is trying to create a sustainable version of home working so that it becomes a long term option for the business. Because working from home has been such a success for financial services firms, pleas from the Government for staff to return to offices are being largely ignored, leaving a distinct impression city centres will be changed for good.
