Recent global research has uncovered, when you work is just as important as where you work.
What flexibility resembles in the new hybrid work environment has been a subject of discussion since the COVID-19 pandemic forced employees and their employers out of the office and into their homes.
The term flexibility is thrown around generally without any well-defined indication of what that looks like in practice. Initially these discussions focus on location – in the office, remote, or a fusion of the two. Organisations feel they are achieving flexibility by concentrating solely on the workers location, without consideration that staff might also be keen to escape from the conventional 9-to-5 workday – and specifically, days packed full of back-to-back meetings that push that “9-to-5 workday”, into late evening hours to keep up with the workload.
It’s unsurprising to find that according to Future Forum Pulse, 93 percent of employees want flexibility in when they work, while a smaller but still significant percentage (76 percent) want flexibility in where they work. Moreover, only 20% of employees see the office as a place for focused, solo work.
