Employers are learning you can’t put the genie back in the bottle. After two years of working from home, employees aren’t ready to give up their freedom and flexibility. More than one-third (35%) of workers believe location flexibility to be the primary deciding factor to accept their last job offer, above those who said that total compensation was the defining factor, according to just released data from Gusto, a San Francisco-based HR tech firm. Additionally, nearly half of workers (48%) said that the ability to work from home some or all of the time would be a major or the most important factor in determining whether to accept a job offer in the future. Gusto data shows that being a fully remote worker correlates to a 9%-13% decrease in the odds of quitting within three months of hire, meaning less expenditures for the business in attracting, onboarding and retaining new talent. In this episode of HRD Talk, Mark Condon, founder and managing partner of QuantumWork Advisory, examines the push for returning to the office and offers advice for HR leaders.
