The Driving Forces: The Demand in Flexible Work
As with any industry, there are constant changing forces, especially in Human Resources and workforce recruitment. Flexible work is no longer a ‘future prediction’ from HR experts. It’s here to stay as it’s evident from the fundamental shifts in the way employees look for and approach work.
A 2019 report by McKinsey revealed that up to 30% of the U.S. workforce engaged in some form of gig work. This trend isn’t confined to the United States alone; it’s a global phenomenon. And a 2021 survey by PwC found that 63% of executives believed that gig workers would become an essential part of their workforce within the coming years.
These drivers that are increasing the demand for gig-work are the same factors that lead to shift workers wanting change and more flexible work, even if they are employed full-time workers.

Flexible work makes employees happy
The research shows that a flexible work schedule creates happy employees. When staff have flexibility for work-life balance and they feel their personal needs are met, not only are employees happier, they are also more productive and stay with companies longer.
Additionally, research conducted by Gallup revealed that employees who have control over their work hours and schedules report higher levels of engagement and well-being. These findings highlight the importance of flexibility in work arrangements, which not only enhances employee happiness but also boosts productivity and retention rates among shift workers.
Put scheduling on autopilot
Picture this, you’ve just onboarded a new staff member to cover important morning shifts. The new employee is wondering when they will work next, but in order to find out, they have to drive to the business location and take a photo of the paper schedule for the week that’s hanging in the manager’s office.
By time they get home, a shift may have changed and the new employee is not sure who they will be working with that day, or even if their own shift has changed.
With Evolia, that all changes. Companies can put scheduling on auto-pilot and employees can seamlessly review their upcoming shifts on their mobile device or home computer. They can be updated with any relevant information or changes to their schedules all with a click of a button.
Now, your new employees won’t be frustrated by old-school paper scheduling methods, and they can focus on the important parts of their job.
With employee self-scheduling, you can empower your team to select the shifts they are capable of fulfilling, fostering a sense of ownership and responsibility.
