A third of UK workers would resign rather than return to office full-time

Just over a third of people working in the UK interviewed by LinkedIn for its new 2023 Workplace Learning Report: Building the Agile Future claim that they would leave their job if their employer insisted that they return to the office full-time.

The report indicates that nearly two-thirds of employees are thinking about making a job change in 2023, but 20% of these would stay where they were if they were able to work under more hybrid/flexible/remote conditions. Overall, more than half the women quizzed (52%) say they had already left their job or were thinking about doing so because of a lack of flexible working opportunities. Data from the site shows demand for remote roles outstripping supply in the UK.

Ngaire Moyes, LinkedIn’s country manager for the UK, said: “We know that flexibility brings all sorts of benefits, including being a huge motivator for employees, meaning it’s crucial for employers to consider this when it comes to attracting top talent. The pandemic saw a revolution in how people work, and for the majority of businesses, the great experiment in remote working was more successful than anyone ever expected. Three years on, we have adjusted to a new, flexible way of working, and of course most people don’t want to go back to how things were pre-Covid."
