Techspace has released The Scaleup Culture Report, a national report diving into the current state of workplace culture across the UK tech industry.
Based on a comprehensive YouGov survey of 1,000 tech workers, the report sheds light on how companies are adapting to new working models and shares insights to help businesses.
Notably, the report highlights the importance of work-life balance, social interaction and career growth opportunities in retaining top talent.
Today (not including pay, the role and the location) a flexible working policy is considered a high priority by 78% of tech employees and a hybrid working policy by 67% of tech employees. Other important factors include flexible working policies and opportunities for career development. These statistics have exposed a new factor that will determine start-ups’ competitiveness in the job market.
Jonathan Bevan, CEO of Techspace, said: “In just three short years, the world of work has undergone remarkable change. Driven by the pandemic and the war for talent there has been a big shift towards flexible work. Workplace discussions have gone from being slow-moving and mundane to being a hot topic of conversation. Every company needs to continually re-evaluate how they work to keep pace.”
“One of the most interesting learnings is the continued tension between what individuals believe is best for them and what managers and leaders believe is best for their company.”Click below to share this article
