XING sees ‘huge uptick’ in job ads for flexible working


XING, the online business network with 17.7 million users focusing on Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, added almost half a million members in the first three months of 2020. Robert Bertschinger, managing director of the Swiss market, says activity spiked during the pandemic, both in terms of the number of log-ins and the amount of time users spent on the platform. Job ads offering the possibility of working remotely have increased fivefold this year, he says.
