The vaccine roll-out may bring the world closer to pre-pandemic times, but it seems the workplace has changed forever. Nine in 10 employees in Southeast Asia want flexibility in where and when they work, and six out of 10 would consider leaving their job if they are not offered such options.

According to the EY 2021 Work Reimagined Employee Survey, only 15% of employees surveyed from Southeast Asia would prefer to work from office full time.

The majority would prefer to work anywhere (32%), work remotely full time (29%), or in a hybrid work arrangement (23%).
