75% of Spanish workers believe flexibility is a top concern ...

After returning from the summer holidays, workers tend to rethink their future employment. This fresh approach of reconsidering professional and vital priorities has only strengthened this.

In fact, 87 percent of employees believe it is critical that their company assists them in maintaining a healthy work-life balance. It is evident that a shift is taking place in the professional paradigm that implies a different approach to working.

More than 100 years ago, the working day in Spain was established, often referred to as "outdated", as it does not address the changing needs of workers or companies. Hence, a new labor conception is on the rise, including the fractional mode.

The "fractional" approach can make finding success, professional and personal satisfaction easier. It's a growing trend, fueled by independent individuals who want to broaden their experience, while still having the freedom to work on varied projects from anywhere and with complete flexibility of schedules to pursue their professional career.

For this reason, until 75 percent of workers desire more flexibility at work, there is currently the possibility of teleworking and opting for more flexible jobs.

Shortly, new work structures are being considered every time to be more independent and productive. This paradigm shift is backed by research: 64 percent of executives at the top of their industry are increasingly opting to be self-employed, while 77% of freelancers report a significant increase in their productivity when working from home.

Fractional work is a new work method that addresses all of these new demands. This new method of working is being used by businesses and startups that, in a phase of rapid growth, wish to hire experts without the need to hire them full time and indefinitely.

With the "fractional" mode, you can expand the scope of your organization by attracting on-demand talent. Startups are increasingly required to strengthen teams with seven employees on average, with a total of more than 4,000 jobs in the sector in Spain and Portugal.

Fractional work is an excellent way to attract highly skilled and experienced executives: In the United States, a pioneering country in this work dynamic, 77 percent of employees consider flexibility to be critical when considering new employment opportunities. And for employers, it is highly beneficial: 68 percent of hiring managers believe that working remotely is preferable for them.

According to a Randstad Research report, digitization and its advantages will enable the share of teleworking to double in the medium term, with the Comunity of Madrid (36%), the Basque Country (34%) and Catalonia (33%) as the autonomous regions where it will be the most effective.

"The benefits of "fractional work," according to Mónica Osborne, Blue Quo's chief sales and talent officer and selection expert, are quite wide: from hiring a qualified professional in whom you can place total trust for a limited period of time, to exponentially increasing the company's profits, thanks to the expertise of specialists who guarantee precise and optimal results".
