Not Just A Pandemic Perk: Majority of Employees Ready To Walk If Companies Don't Embrace Hybrid Work
PAY TRANSPARENCY: Almost half (43%) are more likely to apply to jobs listings with a salary range
GHOSTED: Underrepresented candidates face an almost 25% higher chance of being ghosted in the hiring process
NEW YORK, June 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- This year's edition of the Greenhouse Candidate Experience Report, surveying over 1,200 US-based employees, found that the large majority (76%) would actively search for or be open to a new job if their company rolled back flexible work policies. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups are nearly one-quarter (22%) more likely to look for jobs if their company no longer offers flexible policies. This data points to the new expectations around work – the large majority of workers feel that flexibility is not just a pandemic perk.
The data reveals that inflexible companies will struggle to hire top talent – 42% of candidates will not apply for a role that doesn't offer their preferred working model. As more companies mandate a return to the office, hybrid remains the preferred working model for 40% of workers while 12% prefer a fully remote model, showing that workers want a flexible mix of in-person and remote work.
Candidates want pay transparency, regardless of State mandates
Ghosting remains a serious issue for inclusive hiring processes
"The report findings validate that the changes to how and where we work over the last three years are not temporary adjustments due to a global pandemic – hybrid is here to stay. Flexibility, fairness and pay transparency instill trust in a company. Leaders that haven't been listening to candidates and employees in recent years will be frced to realize that work has undergone a massive shift, and they can either adapt to this new world or lose out on top talent, and ultimately, business success," said Donald Knight, Chief People Officer at Greenhouse.
