90% of office workers want more flexibility in their job...

With half of those willing to leave their job if they’re not offered this!

The pandemic has exposed many workers to what life is like working from home and the flexibility that this offers, and they don’t want to lose it. On average employees expect to be allowed to work remotely 2-3 days a week after the pandemic.  

Luckily, only one in 10 employers are expecting their employees to revert to pre-pandemic working arrangements with a full return to the office, with most of these operating in the services sector. 

However, there seems to be disagreement in terms of productivity when working from home. 41% of employees say they are more productive working from home however, many managers are worried that this is not the case. 

It may be a good idea to emphasise the importance of communication. Ensuring that all employees can communicate effectively and keep communication channels open, so any potential issues can be identified before they become a problem. 

The HealthBoxHR platform offers the flexibility that is now so highly demanded. We make managing organisations of all shapes and sizes an easy, flexible and fully transparent process. We offer tools such as One-to-One where you can easily set up meetings as an employer or employee about personal or professional issues. 

However, as it is now coming to the end of the summer holidays in the UK. Many Brits admit that they are actually looking forward to going back to the office and be away from family. 

This may be a short phase as when the winter draws in, workers may want to be at home more, preparing for the Christmas holidays.
