Employers fail to meet working expectations

A new survey by Capita has revealed that employers are failing to meet workers’ expectations on remote working. Just 32% of UK workers can work remotely as and when they please. The State of IT – The Employee Verdict also revealed that 71% of staff would like the option, citing work-life balance, lower transportation costs and a reduced carbon footprint. Joe Hemming, executive officer at Capita IT & Networks, said: “Today’s workforce is increasingly demanding the ability to work wherever and whenever they want. In the long run, an inability to offer remote, flexible working could leave an organisation watching some of its best employees heading for the exit.”
