(Bloomberg) -- They may be digital natives, but the U.K.’s younger workers are less used to working from home than their elders, according to data from the Office for National Statistics. Workers over the age of 70 and those between 45 and 49 are most likely to have worked remotely last year, compared with just one in 10 aged 20-24. With the government urging people to stay away from their places of employment to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, the numbers may indicate younger workers are less able to do so effectively due to their job function, lack of equipment or need for greater support.
