If you’ve been reading rumblings about great reshuffles and even greater resignations in the workplace, they’re definitely happening — 43% of workers are looking to change jobs this year.
A recent Accenture study found that following the pandemic, many workers have realized that with the right resources, they can be productive anywhere. Often they find being at home offers a work-life balance and productivity they hadn’t experienced previously. 32% of study participants said remote work gave them a better quality of life, while 31% said it gave them the freedom to take more productive breaks from work as needed.
The other side of this is the access to facilities, mentoring, training and technology that are only available in the office. Twenty-two percent said being onsite gives improved visibility to leaders, and 25% like to collaborate face-to-face with their colleagues, while 27% have easier access to technology when they are in the workplace.
Going forward, what seems clear is that workers now have options for the jobs they want to do. For many of us, what works best is a hybrid working week: some days at home to focus on tasks and tick jobs off our to-do lists, some days in the office to take meetings and check-in with our teams. For others, full remote is the way forward, and for others again, a move back to a full office-based role is the way to go.
The good news is that employers are taking note — and if you are looking for a new role, we have three you might want to consider below. For lots more open positions, check out our Job Board.
