A large majority of women in the UK technology industry think companies could improve employee retention by offering remote working and flexibility.

Research by recruitment firm Robert Walters found 76% of women in tech believe flexible working encourages staff to stay with a firm longer, and 72% said career development opportunities are a key priority for a job role.

Almost 70% of all IT professionals, men and women, agree that allowing employees to work from home or be away from the office improves retention.
