84% would leave for more flexible hours

A report in the FT says that a survey by recruitment consultancy Woodhurst has found that 84% would leave their company for a job with more flexible hours. 88% would leave for more money.

It is worth noting that many recruitment company surveys survey the people that they know, thereby asking people already interested in leaving (and hence getting very high figures). The similarity in the figures matches my early findings on the links between desire for more money and work-life balance.
