The State of the Deskless Workforce 2022: UK results

2.7 billion workers worldwide are deskless, that's equal to 80% of the global workforce. For this report we polled 1,500 deskless workers in the UK to discover their needs and wants, as well as their everyday challenges. 

This is what we found out:

  • 67% are confident of finding another job quickly based on their skills

  • 57% have considered quitting their jobs in the past year

  • 62%  have received no training or resources to help with career development

The deskless workforce are often categorised as hourly or shift employees. 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.
