“Working From Home Could Lead To More Prejudice”, Report Warns

Widespread working from home could lead to an increase in racism and prejudice, a new report warns.

Workplace friendships are key to breaking down misconceptions, the England and Wales study for the Woolf Institute suggests.

Institute founder Ed Kessler said as more people work from home they risk going “back into isolated silos”.

He called on ministers to focus on offices and workplaces as a “vital” area for improving community relations.

The study, conducted by polling company Survation for the Woolf Institute, which researches interfaith relations, surveyed 11,701 people.
