How Much of Your Salary Would You Be Willing to Give Up for More Flexible Hours

We all dream about working from home, or four-day work weeks, or setting our own hours.  But would you be willing to take a pay cut to make it happen?

The majority of the country says . . . no. PR Newswire reports that42% say YES.  That’s two out of five working adults.

The average person would be willing to give up about 6% of their salary for more flexibility at work.  With a $50,000-a-year job, that’s a $3,000 pay cut.

Men are actually twice as likely as women to say they’d give up more of their salary.  12% of men would give up 10% of their salary for more flexibility . . . only 6% of women would give up 10% of their salary for that flexibility.

People 18-to-34 are more than three times more likely than older workers to be willing to give up 10% of their salary for more flexibility.

For what it’s worth . . . if you run a company and actually set people’s salaries, you may get better workers for cheaper if you offer slightly less money for more flexibility.

62% of people say that flexibility is a huge factor when they’re choosing a job.  79% of working mothers and 77% of working fathers say they’d stay at a company longer if it offered more flexibility.
