A new national employee survey by RemoteWorker shows that nine out of 10 (87%) employers still have not offered any financial support to reduce the impact of the cost-of-living crisis.

The extensive national survey has also highlighted how millions of workers in the UK are unhappy working in offices or workplaces. 


Will employees search for new roles?

The survey also showed that half of all UK employees (51%) are looking to move jobs within the next 12 months.

Also, a third (33%) stated that the main reason for leaving was to gain a higher salary. 

The data also showed that 25 percent of employees admitted that working in an office was impacting their mental health. 

Nearly all surveyed (96%) said that working from home full or part-time was one of the most positive parts of their job


Joe Boll, CEO at RemoteWorker, commented:

“We believe every employee should have the choice to work independently from an office or workplace if possible. This is why we use the most cutting-edge tech to make it easy for anyone to find a new remote working role. 

“Our national employee survey has highlighted how millions of employers haven’t even attempted to offer any support to their employees as the cost-of-living crisis starts to bite so it is no surprise that 50 percent of all UK employees are keen to move roles.”
