The research, from recruiter Robert Walters, found that 85 percent of employees expect continued flexibility to work from home following the pandemic.

 

It also found that professionals moving out of the city centre has increased by 130 percent, despite 60 percent of employers having concerns over productivity levels associated with remote working.

 

Of the businesses looking to downsize primary, city centre offices - they plan to replace them with smaller, satellite offices in rural locations, closer to where employees are based.

 

Other than being cost effective, the research highlights that moving to smaller, regional offices would widen the pool of talent to hire from, as well as meet employee expectations of a better work-life balance.

 

The future of flexible working will be a topic discussed at the the Reward & Payroll Summit, taking place on December 10 and 11. Book now, before the price hike on Sunday.
