2021 'World of Work' Survey

Our 2021 ‘World of Work’ survey received over 6,000 responses from employers and employees based globally. We conducted this research into whether there are any shared sentiments or differences in expectations between employers and the workforce for the coming year.
Covering 5 key areas of the working world - Contracting, Pay Rises, Remote Working, Hiring Plans and Upskilling - 406 ‘organisations’ and 5,779 ‘professionals’ answered our short survey, representing a range of industries in our core locations of Ireland, the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, Mainland China and Japan.


2021 New Skills Trends

51% of companies believe that they will need to hire for new skill sets throughout 2021, in order to appropriately react to market changes. Most professionals appear eager to increase their value, with 77% planning to upskill in their area of expertise.

Insight: In order to adapt and be agile in the current markets, both companies and professionals know that new skills and upskilling will be key to staying competitive.

2021 Hiring Confidence Trends

Almost half (49%) of global businesses are confident that their organisation will return to normal levels of hiring in 2021. Professionals seem to be less optimistic about the resurgence of the recruitment market, with 32% believing that hiring will return to pre-COVID-19 levels in the coming 12 months.

Insight: Despite the pandemic, almost half of businesses are planning on returning to normal hiring levels in 2021. This highlights the fact that companies have adapted to the current market with changes like remote working, as well as the need for companies to continue with their business plans despite the turbulent market. Although only 32% of employees felt the same way, there clearly will be job opportunities in 2021.


2021 Pay Rise Trends

Over half of employers (51%) feel confident that they will be in a position to offer pay rises in 2021. Only 28% of employees are optimistic about being offered an increased salary.

Insight: It will be important for companies to retain their talent in 2021 in order to have the capability to adapt to the current market and stay competitive. While employees may feel differently about the prospects of a pay rise, the stats show that there will be opportunity from the employers’ perspective.

2021 Remote Working Trends

The vast majority (89%) of businesses envisage remote working to continue to some extent into the second half of 2021. Professionals share this perception; 86% of employees also think working from home will remain largely prominent.

Insight: It looks like remote working is here to stay in 2021, and both employers and employees are aligned in their perspectives on this. The big question is whether companies will ever go back with an ‘office-space’ approach or is remote working here to stay permanently?
