More than half of young people think they do not need to be in an office full-time to learn what they need for work, a survey has shown.
Research indicated that a flexible work culture is now a key consideration for most young workers when choosing a job.
More than half of 18- to 34-year-olds surveyed by the business finance lender Sonovate said they don’t believe they need to be in an office full time to learn what they need, and feel they are well equipped to work virtually.
More than a third of respondents aged 18-34 said they had made a career change to work more flexibly during the pandemic.
The report, based on a survey of 4,500 adults, suggested that the coronavirus crisis prompted a shift in attitudes towards jobs among younger workers.
Two out of five younger people questioned said they did not want to work the way they did before the pandemic.
