  • Risk of Quitting: 37% of deskless workers surveyed are considering leaving their jobs within the next six months. This includes those who are definitely leaving, unwilling to commit beyond six months, or undecided.

  • Talent Shortages: Persistent talent shortages are a major challenge for companies worldwide. The US, Germany, France, and other countries are facing high levels of job vacancies compared to available workers.
