Should Staff be Given a Pay Rise to Return to the Office?

UK research suggests that just 17% of London workers want a full-time return to the office. However, that figure jumps up to 43% if workers are offered a pay rise to go back to their offices.

This research, conducted for workplace analytics firm Locatee, shows the challenges both employers and employees are facing as companies attempt to navigate a post-pandemic future.

Other findings from the survey include:

  • Almost one-third of people looking for new jobs now expect to work from home at least two days each week.
  • 47% of people now cite flexible working as one of their top requirements, alongside salary.
  • Despite this desire for flexibility, 24% of companies want their employees back in the office full-time.
  • Almost half of 18- to 24-year-olds worry that remote working could hinder their career progression.

To retain talent and avoid ‘the great resignation’, many firms are planning for a hybrid future that includes regular remote or home-based work, in order to keep staff on-side.

“Businesses run the risk of losing talent if they don’t offer some flexibility,” according to Thomas Kessler, chief executive officer and founder of Locatee. Employees, on the other hand, “still want to feel part of a larger unit, surrounded (sometimes physically) by colleagues, and supported by the business.”
