Despite the high levels of remote working anticipated in the future,
only one in ten companies think their current job architecture and job leveling process support developing a flexible and agile workforce.
A survey of 434 organisations across
Asia Pacific (including Singapore) by Willis Towers Watson further revealed 23%
of employers still do not have policies in place to manage flexible work arrangements
This is despite companies in Singapore expecting the uptick in flexible work arrangements to continue.
In fact, employers anticipate the proportion of full-time employees working from home (37%) in three years’ time will be six times higher than the levels of home working seen three years ago (7%).
When asked about the top reasons for providing alternative work arrangements,
89% cited employee safety concerns as one of the main reasons,
while but over half (57%) were aware this flexibility could promote employee retention and help to improve inclusion and diversity (51%).
