Employees 'open to pay cuts for workplace flexibility'Oct 7, 5:16 pm
Melbourne, Oct 07 (ANI): A new survey has found that most workers are willing to give up their pay for more flexibility at work.The New Work Project survey, which analysed more than 17,000 responses submitted so far, found that 43 percent were prepared to move to a lesser paying job if it suits their needs.One in four have said they would take up to a 5000-dollars cut, while roughly one in 10 would take up to a 10,000-dollars cut. Seven percent have said they would give up more than 10,000 dollars.The result shows that for many workers, the call for greater freedom in their jobs is not merely an idle office complaint. Many are prepared to make sacrifices to make it happen. Juliet Bourke, workplace flexibility expert at Deloitte, has said the results show much of the workforce wants more from their jobs than just a cash reward - and their needs change as they age."We often think that rewarding performance is always - or at least firstly - about money. (These results) create a more compelling case for flexibility across the board - and variations to respond to people across the life course," News.com.au quoted her as saying."Teens are probably earning a junior wage - yet have adult costs of living - hence a preference for money is higher. By mid-30s people are likely to have children and so have high time and cost pressures. I would expect that the last group is staring down the barrel of retirement and the impact of a limited superannuation is becoming very real," she added. (ANI)
