We're excited to announce that we just released the results of our November 2021 Labor Market Report. The analysis, which is based on data from more than 30,000 workers, reveals that 89% of employees would prefer a role with remote options. The resulting impact on hiring is substantial: Employers that offer remote work options will capture 96% of the labor market, while those that don't will lose out on 58% of candidates. View the full November 2021 Labor Market Report for more insights on these trends.
The report reveals offering remote and hybrid flexibility is critical to attracting and retaining talent. Today's tight labor market is drastically different than those of the past, and there has been a fundamental shift in how the workforce looks at opportunities. Candidates have new expectations for how and where they work. Employers must shift how they operate or risk losing more talent. Savvy organizations can use this to their advantage to find, attract and retain talent while achieving cost and diversity initiatives.
The analysis in our report is based on a Q3 2021 survey of U.S. workers and explores employee attitudes related to remote work, relocating and benefits. Key findings include:
As workers move to lower-cost geographies, workforce leaders must embrace a data-based talent acquisition strategy that offers deep visibility into talent availability, competitive market rates, and more across the country. Employers that strategically expand their sourcing efforts to previously untapped locations will gain a critical edge in the race for talent.
Technology workers have a stronger inclination for remote work compared to other industries. Sixty-six percent said they prefer working remotely full time, and 34% said they would only accept a full-time remote role. Nearly two-thirds of network engineers (61%) and 47% of software engineers said they would only accept a full-time remote role.
