Half (49 per cent) of generation Z and 41 per cent of millennial workers said they prefer hybrid working models, while baby boomers (48 per cent) said they prefer onsite work. Generation X (26 per cent) was the most likely to favour fully remote models.

The survey also found more than half (55 per cent) of employees said they received a pay raise in the past year, while 46 per cent said they expect to receive one in the next six months. However, just 24 per cent of respondents said they expected to be promoted in the next year, a percentage that increased among gen-Zers (46 per cent) and decreased among baby boomers (11 per cent).

When asked what factors would justify a pay increase, more than half of workers said they’re planning to upskill this year, either through online (59 per cent) or classroom-based instruction (34 per cent).
