Hybrid Work

Almost all respondents in a poll we carried out on the IWFM LinkedIn account want to do some work from home in future, with only 8% saying they do not want to work from home at all. From the 745 responses, 53% signalled a preference for one-to-two days of working from home, 31% selected three-to-four days and 9% want to work from home full time.

These results follow last week’s launch of the findings from our ‘Returning to workplaces’ time-series research. Amongst the many compelling statistics, it was revealed that almost half (47%) of office workers would search for a new job if they weren’t offered more flexible working options by their employer. This rises to two-thirds (66%) for 18-24-year-olds. These stats evidence a clear risk to employers: lacking a flexible working strategy could harm your ability to attract and retain talent – especially younger workers.

The social media polls form part of our #TheFutureIsHybrid campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the evident paradigm shift in the UK’s attitudes towards ways of working, as revealed in our research; and provide guidance and resources on how to make the transition to a new, flexible workplace strategy.
