A new study from LifeSearch shows that the most popular work arrangement among British workers is hybrid working.
The Health Wealth & Happiness study has found that 21% of younger workers and 12% of all workers would consider changing jobs if they were not offered their preferred work arrangement.
Of the 44% who stated they would prefer hybrid work policies, the most popular version of this arrangement was a 50/50 split, followed by spending three-quarters in the workplace and one-quarter at home.
Still, 36% of respondents stated they would prefer to be in the office full-time, with this number rising among those over 55.
Additionally, the study revealed that 42% of workers are satisfied with their current set up, with just 18% stating they are happier now than they were pre-pandemic.
“The transition back to the office in a post-pandemic world is going to be tough, and most workers don’t feel their employers are being clear enough about what is expected, or that they have had enough of an input into how they want to work,” said Emma Walker, Chief Marketing Officer at LifeSearch. “It is therefore really important that employers are open and honest with their workers about what they expect of them, but also that they are listening to their concerns and offering the help, support and flexibility they need as we move into this next stage of the Covid-19 recovery.”
