More Than 50% Employees Will Quit If Work From Home Flexibility Is Removed (Survey Results)
With the coronavirus pandemic completely disrupting the in-office work model, a recent survey conducted by a workplace safety tools maker Envoy, reports that of the 1000 working employees participating in the survey, about 48% wanted to continue the hybrid workplace model.
A hybrid model is a mix of working at home and in the office. You can find details on the same adapted by Indian companies and giants, exclusively on Trak.in.
What’s more surprising that these employees would rather switch jobs than continue with the initial in-office work model.
