72% of UAE employees attracted to companies that offer flexible work environments – Report
Citrix just released the findings of their new research into the mobile workstyles in UAE. The survey – conducted on behalf of Citrix by YouGov – shows that 72% of UAE employees prefer flexible working environments – both in terms of location and devices, only 27% have support from the organization to do so.
The benefits to employees include a better work/life balance, happier team and a reduction in time commuting; the last of which as we are all aware is a major cause of stress for most of us. However the report also states the business stands to benefit as well with increased loyalty, increased productivity, and more time with customers & clients.
The survey goes deeper into the user’s preferred location of work as well as the reasons behind working at home.
The concept of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is getting popular among businesses and their IT departments. By allowing employees to use their own devices at work, the business is not onlyreducing hardware and licensing costs, it also boosts satisfaction among employees.
Of course no report would be complete without an accompanying infographic, and the included one highlights the key findings from the report.
