Why offer hybrid working?

Posted by Tilt Recruitment on December 9, 2021

We all know jobseekers are excited about hybrid working–but why should you be? Does letting your IT staff work from home part of the time actually benefit you, the employer, beyond keeping your employees happy?

The answer is a resounding yes. Here’s why.

1. Larger candidate pool

The talent shortage is worsening, with low unemployment and over a million unfilled vacancies in the UK. Finding good IT talent locally is getting harder. But if you offer remote working, you can hire from anywhere in the country or even the world, creating a more diverse team and dramatically widening your talent pool.

2. Improved loyalty

As the post-COVID ‘Great Resignation’ gathers steam, workers around the world are quitting jobs in record numbers, and employers are struggling to work out how to retain them. Offering hybrid, flexible or remote working will help; flexibility is the no.1 thing employees are now looking for, above even salary.

3. Improved mental health

Mental wellbeing has been in the headlines recently as the pandemic has forced companies to take a hard look on the mental health of employees. Companies with a good wellbeing policy will fare better in the recruitment market. By offering flexible hours or locations, you’ll be seen as taking good care of your employees and trusting them, which will boost your employee attraction and retention.
