Survey Reveals Most Canadian Workers Want Flexibility

A new survey from ADP Canada has found that 45% of Canadian workers want to work remotely at least three days out of the work week. Respondents of the survey also said that remote working has had little impact on their quality of work or productivity.

Overall, the response about flexible and remote working seems overwhelmingly positive. However, 69% said that they would not accept reduced compensation for working from home. 

“It’s clear that employees want to choose how and when they work. Employers that embrace flexibility within their culture may improve employee engagement, retention and performance,” said Heather Haslam, Vice President of Marketing at ADP Canada. “However, flexible work requires the appropriate tools to support collaboration, productivity, workplace culture and engagement in a remote environment.”

The workplace of the future will undoubtedly feature some sort of flexibility, particularly as respondents express anxiety about coming back to the office. In fact, the survey found that 53% of workers had mixed feelings about going back to the workplace, with 56% saying they were concerned about contracting COVID-19.

Despite the uncertainty many workers appear to be feeling, 84% said they believe their employer has taken the necessary steps to protect them from the spread of the virus by enacting stricter distancing measures, upping their sanitation practices and offering the equipment necessary to keep them safe.
