Our Solution

Adaptability towards work location could prove advantageous as job hunters look for ways to stand out from the crowd, codestone.net reports. Those with garden offices could already be ahead of the employment game, after the chief executive of Work Wise UK asserted that a willingness to work from home could 'strengthen candidates' appeal' in an increasingly competitive jobs market. Phil Flaxton believes that being amenable to working remotely might interest employers who could benefit from lower operational costs and higher performance levels. It's a well-known fact that working from home can promote a healthy work-life balance, increase loyalty, encourage engagement and improve productivity. As a result, many employers are embracing the concept and may be looking for candidates who are actively championing home working. In addition, the suggestion of home working could help people living in rural areas - where there may be either fewer roles or a proliferation of seasonal work - to find opportunities across the UK; something that might previously have been impossible. In addition, Mr Flaxton said that demonstrating a strong work ethic could significantly boost chance of success, no matter the background from which they originate. A determination to work, he told careeranalysts.co.uk, could make it more likely for a candidate to find employment.
