The annual Salary & Satisfaction Survey from games recruiting agency Skillsearch shows a rising demand for flexible working arrangements.

According to the Skillsearch study, 82% of respondents said they have “positive feelings” about the notion of a four-day work week in the future, and 80% of respondents said they would be interested in one. In addition, 79% of those who responded to the study stated that they would “actively seek out” a studio in the future that had a four-day work week.

It’s important to note that just 7% of respondents to the Skillsearch study presently work for an organization that offers a four-day workweek. 92% of the respondents said that they anticipate to work remotely one or more days per week this year.

Nearly half (46%) of those who responded to the study indicated that they “will be or are considering” looking for work in 2023.

The cost of living problem was also examined in the study, with 51.8% of the participants reporting that their financial condition has gotten worse since last year. 22.4% indicated they are in better shape, while 25.8% stated their situation is roughly the same. According to 62% of respondents, their company is doing little to assist workers who are experiencing a cost-of-living issue.

2,338 respondents from the games and interactive sectors provided responses for the study, the majority of whom were situated in the UK and Western Europe.
