La plateforme jobs.lu vient de publier les résultats de l’enquête «Global Ways of Working», réalisée par le BCG et The Network. L’objectif de cette enquête est d’analyser l’impact à long terme de la pandémie sur le monde du travail.
Pour adada, jobs.lu en a extrait les informations relatives au Luxembourg, et en particulier au secteur marcom luxembourgeois:
Working from home isn’t new. Before the pandemic, however, many companies were still treating it as an occasional practice allowed only for certain employees. COVID-19 has democratized distance work. The details vary, but it’s clear that overall flexible work awareness has created an expectation that will outlive the crisis.
20% of respondents would like to have complete timing flexibility, with no fixed work hours at all.
The desire for flexibility does not stop at location; it extends to work time as well. Roughly 15% of respondents in Luxembourg working in Marketing and Communication say they want a traditional 9-to-5 job with fully fixed hours. The largest proportion (more than 60%) would prefer a combination of fixed and flexible time, which could take the form of a daily window of a few hours when everyone is required to work and flexibility regarding the remaining required time. Another 20% of respondents would like to have complete timing flexibility, with no fixed work hours at all.
Flexibility relating to when one is at one’s desk is obviously helpful to the work-from-home model in that it allows for personal preferences and family commitments. Of course, the model also requires discipline on the part of the remote worker and a reverse sort of flexibility so that colleagues in other time zones aren’t forever unable to engage the remote worker in real time.
