The ongoing quest to get workers back in the office is having several ripple effects on employer-employee dynamics.
Those consequences are increasingly reflected in job postings, according to an analysis by workforce demographic firm Lightcast.
The analysis found the percentage of postings advertising remote work is trending down — falling from 8.9% in October 2022 to 6.4% in March. The percentage remains above pre-pandemic levels but is another example of employers regaining leverage in the hiring market.
But Lightcast also found a small but growing share of employers are willing to pay up for onsite workers.
Just under 2% of job postings in March offered relocation benefits. That’s obviously a small percentage overall, but it’s a notable jump from 1.2% before the pandemic. See More.
