Working Hours Are More Flexible and People Are More Satisfied
According to Statistics Estonia Working Life Survey, working hours have become more flexible for Estonian people. Flexible working hours also lead to people being more satisfied with their work. In 2009, 63.3% of employees were able to choose part or all of their working time, as of 2021, 77.2% of employees will be able to do so.
In particular, employees of large companies with 250 or more people can choose working hours. As of last year, 85.9% of employees in large companies can choose when to work.
Job satisfaction has increased, in 2009 and 2015 there were 5-6% dissatisfied employees, as of 2021 there are 4% dissatisfied employees. Service and sales staff are the least satisfied with their job, while managers and top professionals are most satisfied.
"In our daily communication with various companies and candidates, we have certainly noticed the tendency that more and more companies allow both flexible working hours and remote working. Companies that offer flexible working hours and remote work have a better chance of finding the best talents for their company, because people are used to a certain freedom and if the company lacks flexibility, they will not start working there. I believe that this trend will continue, and for more and more companies it is important that the work is done with quality, not what time it is done and whether it is done at home or in the office. ”Kerli Kudo ANCOR recruiter
