Do you have an agile working policy at your organisation? If not, it might be time to implement one.
According to Randstad's Workmonitor, eight in 10 employees around the world said they prefer agile working as it allows them to maintain a good work-life balance.
Zooming in on the APAC countries, the same sentiment was shared by 89% of employees in the region - 90% of employees in Malaysia and China, 91% of staff in Hong Kong, and 85% of those in Singapore.
Over in China, employees welcome the option of flexible work arrangement, with 90% of them believing that it can help them lead a healthier lifestyle. Furthermore, 92% want to have more autonomy at work to attain job satisfaction.
However, unlike other Asian markets, mature workers in mainland China are more likely to feel that agile working has interfered into their personal lives, with 67% of the people believing so.
In addition, 100% of the same demographic said that everyone works at the office during opening hours. Millennials in mainland China are more likely to ask for flexible work arrangements as they believe that it will help them maintain a good work-life balance.
