These days with so many people working from home it’s really conceivable to do your job from anywhere, and it sounds like some folks are all for that.
A new Robert Half survey finds:
- 51% of workers say they’d think about relocating to a different city if their company allowed long-term remote arrangements.
- 4% have actually moved already for this reason.
- As for why those folks would be interested in moving:
- 37% said they’d love a change of scenery
- 22% would do it to find lower cost of living
- But remote working is not the most important thing to many, with 75% saying they would not be open to taking a pay cut from their current job to move.
When it comes to how companies feel about workers doing their job from anywhere
- 50% of human resource managers say their company is open to the idea.
- 50% say their organization has already allowed workers to relocate temporarily.
- 38% have been supportive of permanent moves.
- As for how companies plan to handle salaries when employees move
- 74% say they’d have to look at the office’s location.
- 23% would look at where the employee is now working from.
- 3% haven’t made any decisions yet.
