Companies that want to hire anyone between the ages of 23 and 38 should continue to offer remote working in 2023, or risk losing their workforce. This is because millennials have come to expect at the very least a hybrid working solution, being able to work from home some of the time.
As millennials remain the largest section of the workforce in the UK, this will influence the majority of businesses to continue to allow remote working, driven by the demand of its staff.
There are many benefits of providing remote working solutions that companies should not discard though. In fact, Owl Labs recently revealed those working from home in 2021 were 47 per cent more productive and worked, on average, one more day a week.
This is because a quarter of employees said office politics was a distraction, compared with just 15 per cent of remote workers. In addition to this, more than a third of those in the office said colleagues affected their productivity due to constant interruptions.
Furthermore, 28 per cent of office workers complained their productivity was impacted by their daily commute.
Forbes stated: “Remote work isn’t going anywhere. Companies should either already be adapting their working environments or preparing to adapt, as remote working demands will likely only increase from here on out.”
This comes after Elon Musk was forced to backtrack on his scrapping of remote working following his takeover of Twitter, after a considerable number of important employees threatened to leave the company.
Businesses that do offer a hybrid solution should make sure their remote IT services in Essex are up to scratch to avoid any disruptions to their staff working from home.
