Nearly half of all office visits this year were once a week, a blow to bosses and civic leaders who want workers back at their desks more regularly.

In the four months before the pandemic hit, the share of once-a-week office visits was 21%, according to data from, a workplace-occupancy analytics company. Globally, weekly visits of four to five days were about 20% with North America and the Asia-Pacific region the highest at 26% each.
