The State of the Deskless Workforce 2021 | Australia
This is what we found out:
94% are contacted off-hours by their employer
33% would choose a flexible schedule over higher pay
55% have noticed understaffing issues
The deskless workers are the childcare educators, age care workers, retail assistants, warehouse managers, bartenders and logistics employees who keep a country going. They are the lifeblood of our economy and, often, front line workers. When the global pandemic hit last year, for the deskless workers, working safely from home wasn’t an option.
