Le telework, okay, but not in any condition. The British firm Vanson Bourne conducted a survey of a thousand employees in the United Kingdom, the United States, France and Germany, revealing the increased importance of remote working conditions offered by a company to its troops. According to BFM TV, the study established in particular that a poor digital environment can push a large part of the employees questioned to refuse a position, or even to resign. Overall, 42% of respondents believe that the quality of their remote working environment is one of the criteria they would choose to recommend – or not – their company.
Among the youngest employees, the question of the remote digital environment takes on even greater importance, since it could push 28% of 25-34 year olds… to quit their job! A proportion already a little lower among 35-44 year olds (24%), and even lower for employees closer to the end of their career (15% of 45-54 year olds).

The stakes are high for large companies, as the arrival of the pandemic has greatly transformed the world of work, and led to a phenomenon of massive resignation in various sectors. Especially since in addition to influencing the reputation of the company or the possible desire to leave young employees, teleworking carried out in poor conditions can have serious consequences on the morale of the workers concerned.
According to Vanson Bourne, which conducted another study in parallel, managers of human resources and technical departments report that the poor quality of the digital environment has become the third cause of burnout or resignation, behind the remuneration and corporate cultures deemed “toxic”.
