Workers Prioritise Location Over Salary In Their Roles

Posted by Robert Warburton on in Online Recruitment

A new survey has found that UK workers now prioritise job location over all other factors, such as, salary and job security when choosing whether or not to stay in their current role, according to a new survey released by ClickSoftware.

Location was cited by 57% of workers as the most important factor in their roles, beating salary (52%) and job security (33%) into second and third place respectively.

It also found 20% UK workers felt that due to the location of their work they had become less productive, whilst 25% of London based workers said their productivity would suffer if they were required to work in a ‘horrible location’.

The survey found that workers in the South East of the UK were the most likely to put the location of their work first when thinking about employment, whilst young professionals were most likely to be affected by where they work, with a quarter of 25- to 34-year-olds saying their productivity would be affected by a bad location.

In addition to this and quite notably, two-thirds of respondents said they have either considered leaving, or have left a job, for a change of scenery.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the most popular place to work cited by respondents was their own homes, with 60% preferring to do so.
