Research finds working from home a good thing

New research has found the COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way regional and rural Australians think about working from home.

Around 8 in 10 Australians (81%) who've been forced to work from home say the experience has positively changed the way they think about work-life flexibility.

More than half those surveyed in regional areas (54%) say they also expect to work from home more often after the crisis has ended.

Brad Whitcomb from NBN Co says there's been a significant shift in mindset thanks to improved technology and faster internet speeds.
