60% expect more flexibility from employer in comparison to before COVID
Whereas many employers pre-2020 were still reluctant to allow place- and time-independent work, telecommuting has now become highly normalized. Indeed - it has often become an acquired right. As many as six in ten employees expect more flexibility from their employer on when and where they work than before the pandemic. One in two now also expect more understanding from their employer when they are having problems in their private situation, or when the employee is struggling with their mental well-being.
