Global Workforce Hopes and Fears Survey 2022 Report | PwC

Workforce Trends

As organizations seek to understand the sentiments of workers, this PwC survey report of 52,195 workers in 44 countries and territories—provides a few insights. A few stats include 1) One in five respondents say they are likely to switch to a new employer in the next 12 months, 2) More than a third plan to ask for a raise, but finding fulfillment at work is just as important, 3) Skilled employees are most likely to ask for promotions and pay raises and to feel listened to by their manager, while those lacking skills feel they lack power in the workplace, 4) By a margin of more than 30 points, respondents felt discussing social issues at work has had a positive impact on them. The implication is that conversations about sensitive political and social issues might not be as polarizing as managers might fear. 5) Regarding hybrid work, 45% of respondents said their job could not be done remotely; these workers are also far less likely than others to say they find their job fulfilling, believe that their team cares about their well-being, feel that they’re fairly rewarded financially or feel they can be creative in their work. Of those workers that say their job can be done remotely, 63% say they prefer some mix of in-person and remote working. Organizations can use these data points as one of several sources to inform their workforce strategies.
