A survey that gathered the opinions of 1,000 women professionals, revealed that over 40% respondents consider “flexible options that allow a certain amount of work from home” in the post-Covid world as the deciding factor when it comes to their jobs.
The option of working from home and/or visiting the office only when required is the best one according to them as they adapt to the changing corporate world and family needs.
The survey of women professionals and job seekers was recently conducted by JobsForHer, a leading online career platform for women.
Speaking on the survey findings, Neha Bagaria, Founder & CEO, JobsForHer, said, “This is in tandem with the 62% increase in job applications that JobsForHer saw on its platform between April and July and a 55% 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.”
To understand how women job seekers are viewing the recent shift to virtual recruitment, the survey conducted on the platform showed that out of over 1000 respondents, 90% women were comfortable with the virtual hiring process as it saves time and is convenient because it opens up plenty other opportunities to attend interviews at otherwise far-away locations thereby cutting down on the commute.
