4/5 Singapore employees and job seekers wish for flexi work in order to obtain that work-life balance, according to a recent study.
Along with this, the respondents of the study claim that work autonomy maximises creativity, productivity and job satisfaction. Moreover, the study also highlighted that 3 out of 4 employees already experience flexibility to work outside of business hours and work from home.
On the other hand, 55% of employees believe that the freedom will potentially interfere with their personal lives.
Following this, the study demonstrated that women in Singapore also have less tendency to feel that flexi-working has interfered with their personal life when compared to men.
Back in March, there were discussions of authorities extending the Work-Life Grant from the 1st of July. According to sources, the employers will welcome S$2,000 per year over 2 years for each individual employee on flexi-work, for up to 35 employees.
