LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, May 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The majority of workers want their employer to encourage more working from home after the Covid-19 public health crisis has passed, according to a poll by Phaidon International, the global specialist recruitment leader.

In a poll of 5,200 global professionals, 78% say that they would like their employer to encourage more working from home.

Key findings include:
• Over three-quarters of workers want their employer to encourage more working from home; technology (82%), supply chain (82%), life sciences (81%), and finance (74%) professionals especially agree.
• Two-thirds of engineering professionals (69%) also want their employer to encourage more working from home. However, one fifth (18%) say that such policies would not affect them.

“This snapshot shows that employees all over the world are looking for their employer to lead this conversation,” said Group Marketing Director Luis Rolim. “The option to work from home may still be new territory for many, but it is something that employers should consider if they want to prevent a talent exodus in the next three-to-six months. Companies who want to attract and secure business-critical talent must start defining what the future of their workplace looks like.”
