Remote Working Has Officially Become The Norm

According to a new survey from Robert Half, 47% of the 2,800 respondents said their company offers some sort of remote work options. 70% of those who are provided remote work utilize it, but the remaining 24% do not due to a lack of necessary technology and distractions.

“In an employment market that favors job seekers, businesses need to provide greater workplace flexibility to attract and retain top performers,” said Paul McDonald, senior executive director of Robert Half. “This goes beyond giving staff permission to work off-site or during nontraditional hours. Employers should check that professionals have the proper equipment and guidelines to do their jobs effectively outside the office.”

Furthermore, flexible work schedules have officially become the norm as more workers demand the option to either work from home or off-site. 

Research has found that workers are flocking to jobs that provide remote work options, as well as leaving those that do not provide flexibility according to a 2019 annual FlexJob Survey. The main reason workers want flexibility is to maintain a work-life balance, more family time and less stressful commutes.
