New Eden Report Reveals Hybrid Work is Top Preference Among Tech Employees
When asked why tech workers stay in their current roles, Eden's survey found that flexibility ranked higher than pay
SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, June 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Eden, the HR and workplace software provider for people-centric companies, today revealed new third-party research highlighting the latest findings regarding worker preferences in the tech industry –– some of which contradict the popular narratives around how tech employees like to work.
Eden's Where Tech Works Report surveyed 1,000 full-time, U.S.-based information workers in the technology industry to understand their work preferences, challenges and priorities. Some of the results challenged common stereotypes of tech workers – including that full-time remote work was the least popular option for tech workers (18%), though the vast majority (95%) say it's very important or slightly important to have the ability to work remotely at least occasionally. The survey also found that 64% of tech employees who work remotely full or part-time say it would take more than a 20% pay increase to get them to work in-office 5 days a week, signaling that hybrid work arrangements are the new normal in the modern workplace. Perhaps most surprising, the favored work policy for Gen-Z was fully in-office, while the most popular work policy for Baby Boomers in tech was fully remote.
"It's clear from our Where Tech Works Report that the vast majority of employees in the tech industry prefer hybrid work, and it's imperative that companies consider this when it comes to recruiting and hiring, developing return to office plans, performance management, and all aspects of the employee experience," said Joe Du Bey, co-founder and CEO of Eden. "The most successful hybrid companies are methodical and deliberate in designing their employee experience, and this approach is especially critical for tech companies to thrive in today's overheated labor market."
