Flexible working is becoming a major consideration for professionals seeking a new role post pandemic, you will need to provide it in order to attract and retain top talent…
New research has shown that more than half of UK professionals consider flexibility of hours or location to be more significant when seeking a new role than it was before the pandemic, whilst 38% thought that workplace culture would play a greater role!
While the majority (68%) said flexibility about work location had improved during the pandemic, and more than half (57%) said flexibility of hours had got better, attitudes towards workplace culture were less positive – only a third of respondents said the quality of their company’s culture had improved in the pandemic, with 20% saying it had declined.
Workspaces now have to adapt to suit the changing needs of their users, including introducing technology to make flexible working more accessible for everyone in order to attract and retain the top talent. Employees want a variety of facilities to choose from in order to complete their tasks efficiently, effectively and productively. For example, as well as traditional desking, collaboration areas, bookable meeting rooms, informal social areas, breakout rooms and phone booths are all important facilities to provide.
