British workers are still only going into the office an average of 1.5 days a week despite the pandemic coming to an end, a survey has found.
Consultancy Advanced Workplace Associates, which advises the Cabinet Office, NatWest and Network Rail, surveyed 43 UK offices in June and July and found just 13% are coming in on a Friday.
The total average attendance was 29%, with mid-week peaking at 39% among the workforce of nearly 50,000 people.
Before the pandemic, workers were going into the office around 3.8 days a week to do jobs in banking, energy, engineering, healthcare, insurance and tech.
But data published by the Office for National Statistics, in May, also found three in four adults in Britain are now travelling to work at some point during the week - up from two-thirds in April.

Some 75 per cent of adults quizzed between May 11 and 22 said they had travelled to work in the past seven days, either exclusively or while spending part of their time working at home. This is up from 66 per cent of those polled from April 13 to 24.
The proportion of people working at home at some point during the week is broadly unchanged, at 37 per cent in mid-May compared with 36 per cent in mid-April.
Meanwhile, Advanced Workplace Associates, also claimed the trend continued in the 36 offices in 12 other countries, about 27,000 people,
