"We have definitely seen a tipping point towards a deeper and more permanent integration of remote and hybrid work into organisations," said Sutton in a statement.

"While it can vary greatly by employer and industry, many companies are successfully adopting hybrid workplaces for the long-term, as this list of leading companies demonstrates. When carried out correctly, hybrid workplaces can be a win for both employers and professionals, and we expect that hybrid working will become the workplace norm moving forward."
