We have looked into hybrid working and the top industries that operate a flexible working environment. By analysing job vacancies posted on LinkedIn, we have pulled the data to show how many roles are on-site, remote or hybrid.
We also conducted a YouGov survey to support this research and asked 1,000 respondents whether they prefer working on-site, remotely, or would like to have a hybrid working approach. Additionally, we questioned where the respondents felt they were more productive when working. The findings are below…
The pandemic saw many companies shift and adapt to remote working in order to stay in operation. Post-pandemic, we’ve seen many businesses across all industries encourage employees back into offices for on-site roles to resume. Though this hasn’t been the case for all industries and roles.
We’ve taken a look at the industries that are currently offering the highest number of hybrid working roles, allowing employees to fully utilise the flexible benefits of remote working and on-site working where needed.
Our analysis of 896,279 jobs on LinkedIn saw that 57,609 (15%) were listed as hybrid roles, three times the amount of remote roles advertised.
The industries offering the most flexibility with a hybrid working approach are Information Technology and Services, Financial Services, Computer Software, Marketing & Advertising and Construction.
