Professionals with a flexible form of employment are more positive about their work than colleagues employed on a strict work schedule. This has been suggested by Yacht, who researched this topic. Professionals who work on a flexible basis have the feeling that they are being challenged, and are positive about their networking opportunities. They also find that they can add more value to their field:
Among permanent staff, fifty eight percent think that it is sufficiently challenged in his work, among persioners this applies to sixty four percent. When asked if someone feels they can add value to their field, fifty nine percent of respondents who are permanent workers answered 'yes'; under flexible professionals, this figure is closer to seventy percent. When asked if they feel they can gain valuable contacts at work, seventy three percent of flexible professionals answered positively, compared with fifty five percent of people in permanent employment.
The study provides insight towards what gives highly trained professionals satisfaction in their work. There are clear differences between what "flexible" and "fixed" believe are the most important pointsa in employment. Where permanent employees will especially add value to the organisation where they work, flexible professionals prefer difference in the field. People with flexible employment do not seek as much admiration from their colleagues, unlike permanent employees, but especially approve of the lower amount of energy needed to maintain a network.
