We do not distinguish between our agency and directly employed staff in our data collection so the agency figures for working from home and attending the workplace are included in the overall figures provided above
We have also provided a breakdown of staff working from home by grade, however, we are not able to provide the same breakdown by grade for those attending the workplace. This is because our data collection is by exception rather than on all staff; i.e. we record the details of staff who fall into specific categories of work such as working from home or absence and then calculate the number attending the workplace by deducting all of the various work and absence categories from our overall headcount figure. Please note that all data provided is administrative data.
