According to the JobForHer survey, more than 40 percent of women professionals consider ‘flexible options that allow a certain amount of work from home’ in the post-COVID world.
The online career platform for women recently surveyed 1,000 women professionals and job seekers.
The survey found that the option of remote working and visiting the office only when required is the best one according to respondents as they adapt to the changing corporate world and family needs.
The survey also revealed that about 90 percent of women are comfortable with a virtual hiring process as it saves time and is convenient because it opens up plenty of other opportunities to attend interviews at otherwise far-away locations thereby cutting down on the commute.
In a press statement, Neha Bagaria, Founder & CEO, JobsForHer, said, “This in tandem with the 62 percent increase in job applications that JobsForHer saw on its platform between April and July and a 55 percent average increase in the number of work-from-home jobs posted by companies. We hope to see more companies hire capable women professionals to fill their roles in the coming months”.
