7 out of 10 recent graduates want some flexibility in their working hours.
But 90% are willing to return to the office.
CEOs and human resources managers around the world are encouraging their employees to return in person to reinforce company culture.
The data is contradicting an image that executives are increasingly convinced of: young people want to work in person .
ADP suggests in one of its latest studies, published in April, that 18-24 year olds are the group most reluctant to return to the full-time face-to-face model.
But the Axios Harris Poll 100 found a generation gap : Gen Z is the least interested in remote work compared to baby boomers , Gen X and millennials . And the latest report from iCIMS Insights finishes polishing the differences: 7 out of 10 want some remote work, but 90% are willing to go to work centers .
“It is those between 38 and 45 years of age, who usually have children and a house on the outskirts, who really do not want to return to the city,” he criticizes.
This also seems to be happening in Spain, according to the statements of the human resources managers that Nawaiam met at an exclusive event to which Business Insider Spain was invited .
” The interns say that the most fun and interesting part is that of the human team . It is the older ones —those who we thought were not going to adapt— who have now delayed going back to the newsroom for as long as possible. They are fighting even more than the young for a little more telecommuting,” says Atresmedia technician Paloma Ugarte, who has been with the company for more than 23 years.
Di Sabio believes this remains a problem.
“I often joke that we can’t have wild 20-somethings with just me there.”
“We’re finding that 20-somethings want to be in the office ,” he defends in an interview with Yahoo! Finance , Carmine Di Sibio, CEO and Global Chairman of EY (Ernst & Young), during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
