Today’s workforce is working from home more and more. This trend is growing and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. A recent study from Polycom shows that almost a full third of employees around the globe are regularly working remotely, and almost two-thirds have some sort of flexible work schedule. Clearly the concept of the workplace is changing both rapidly and dramatically.
If you’re looking to draw a younger workforce as part of your recruiting process, a flexible work schedule is a key benefit. Over two-thirds of millennials reported a work-from-home (WFH) benefit would “substantially increase their interest in an employer.” For job seekers looking for a more casual work environment, WFH might be just the opportunity you need to gain their attention.
