What's Up Wantedly #9 - Employers take note: Young professionals want hybrid work!

Young professionals want hybrid working, and employers need to listen.

A new study by CEMS, the Global Alliance in Management Education, found that 61% of recent graduates prefer to work in a hybrid setting. This means that they want the flexibility to work from home some days and from the office on other days.

There are many reasons why young professionals prefer hybrid working. They value the flexibility it gives them to manage their work-life balance. They also appreciate the ability to travel while working, which can help them to expand their networks and learn new things.

In addition, hybrid working can improve well-being. When people can work from home, they often have more control over their environment, which can reduce stress and increase productivity.

Of course, not everyone is a fan of hybrid working. Some people prefer the traditional office setting, where they can collaborate with colleagues face-to-face. However, the CEMS study found that only 14% of young professionals believe that hybrid working would hurt their career prospects.

This suggests that hybrid working is becoming increasingly popular among young professionals. Furthermore, this talent pool represents the current and next generation of the workforce. Employers wanting to attract and retain top talent must start offering hybrid working arrangements.

Hybrid working can be a win-win for both employers and employees. Employers can attract and retain top talent by offering hybrid working arrangements, while employees can enjoy the flexibility and benefits of hybrid working.
