New Survey Finds 55 Percent of Workers Want Flexibility in Work Life

They are ranking flexibility over higher pay

Two years after the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic forced widespread office closures, companies are now reopening their doors and priorities have shifted for many employees.

Many workers have grown accustomed to the flexibility of a hybrid or remote work environment and are asking their employers to make it a permanent fixture in the workplace, according to a new Bankrate survey, with some even citing it as a greater priority than higher pay.

Some 55 percent of workers say that the ability to work from home or have a more flexible schedule is more important to them now than it was before the pandemic, according to Bankrate's February 2022 Job Seeker Survey. That's compared to 52 percent of respondents who cited higher pay as being of more importance.
