The state of flexible working in 12 countries, including China, Singapore

Does your company offer flexible working? No, say less than one in five (15%) respondents from China, proving that such arrangements are more popular than expected. In comparison, Singapore has some catching up to do, with 29% saying their employer doesn't offer flexible working.

Currently, nearly two thirds of the global workforce take advantage of anywhere working. Compared to May 2012, when only 14% benefitted from remote working, this is relatively fast shift in working culture.

Polycom's new research of 24,000 respondents across 12 countries, including China, Singapore, and Japan, found that almost 60% of workers in Singapore, Australia, and India are working flexibly on a frequent basis.
