Three quarters (76%) of UK IT decision makers believe their organisation could have made the transition to a hybrid model sooner if they were aware of the pros and cons before the pandemic. This is according to the latest research from eFax, the cloud based fax solution for businesses.
The research found that with most employees now accustomed to the flexibility of being able to work remotely, and many employers now offering this in the long-term, organisations that do not offer such flexibility risk deterring their workforce and being unfavourable to future talent.
51% of UK IT decision-makers believe the inability to attract and retain talent, and over a third (38%), believe being unable to accommodate family life, are big risks if business do not enable a hybrid workforce. A further third (34%) believe it would risk a disengaged culture among employees.
