Employee restlessness

Analysis of Google search data by employee engagement consultants scarlettabbott shows a desire for flexibility stoked employee restlessness during the pandemic. The research revealed a sharp rise in the number of searches relating to ‘hybrid working’, ‘4 day working week’ and ‘flexible working’ between 2019 and 2021, as well as a jump in searches for ‘how to write a resignation letter’. The consultants feel it unlikely workers will want to give up this new found autonomy and flexibility.
