For starters, the term “working from home” during the COVID-19 pandemic should be defined loosely. For 47 percent of workers, the place they’re set up for all those video calls and and Slack chats is not their primary residence, according to the survey. Instead, workers log on from “a rented property in an urban town/city” (10 percent), at their parents’ or in-laws’ homes (13 percent), another relative’s house (10 percent) or their second or vacation home (14 percent).
