According to the Global Workforce Revolution report published by Remote, nearly half of UK workers believe that pay and benefits should be dependent upon an employees’ ability.
Additionally, the report found that 21% of respondents believe that pay and benefits should be based upon both a workers’ location and their ability. These findings indicate that remote and flexible working has raised problems around pay equality.
The workplace benefits most wanted by remote workers include pension schemes, home office allowance and healthcare options.
Even more, 70% of respondents said that they would be more loyal to their employer and work at least one year longer if they were able to work remotely.
The report also revealed that workplace culture is essential to hiring and retaining top talent and workers over the age of 55 said that trust was the most important factor.
