As the world of work changes it might time for job boards and ATS systems) to update its job subtypes.
Over seven in 10 (72%) employers intend to offer hybrid work (i.e., working remotely a few days a week or month) as a flexible work option to at least some of their employees after the COVID-19 pandemic, according to 439 US employers responding to XpertHR’s Flexible Work Policies and Practices Survey 2021.
The survey examined six types of flexible work options employers plan to provide post-pandemic and found that hybrid work was the most popular, followed by flexible hours (44%), fully remote work (i.e., working remotely every day and visiting the office a few times a year or less) (43%), flexible scheduling (37%), compressed workweeks or schedules (13%), and extended core business hours to accommodate flexible start/stop times (13%).
Just under one-tenth (9%) of organizations do not plan to offer any flexible work options post-pandemic, and 5% were not sure.
“According to the survey, hybrid work is poised to become a common feature of the post-pandemic working world,” notes Andrew Hellwege, Surveys Editor, XpertHR. “In short, for many organizations, it appears the future will be hybrid.”
Job boards and applicant tracking systems would do well to add a new subtype to their databases;
