Hybrid Working Models: The Future of Work

Following the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more workplaces are starting to adapt a hybrid working model. A term that was not very present prior to the pandemic, hybrid working models are proving to be more beneficial for both employers and employees.

Statistics showed that working from home models skyrocketed during the Covid-19 pandemic, and are still on the rise. Employees and companies alike are enjoying the perks of hybrid working models such as the cost-effectiveness and the productivity-enhancing benefits. While some businesses are adapting a fully remote work model, others are preferring a hybrid of remote and in-office work style.

A fully remote working model means making homeworking arrangements permanent, so employees can have the freedom of managing their own work time at home, and checking into the office when needed for activities such as client meetings or trainings.

On the other hand, hybrid working models are when companies have employees working both in office and remotely. According to a report released by Microsoft, 70% of employees would rather work remotely than in office. This research proved to businesses that they could cut the costs of a brick and mortar office, and have happier and more productive employees.

Research showed that employees working from home for some time prior to and during the pandemic had the highest amount of engagement. However, it has also been found that working from home permanently may cause debility in the long term. While some hybrid models have some employees working only from home and some employees working only in office, the best model of hybrid to choose for both businesses and employees would be to have all employees working from both home and in office.

The most talked about model of hybrid work model is that all employees work on-site for part of the week and remotely part of the week. As with many different work models, this example of working has its pros and cons, and here are a few of them:

  • One of the advantages of this model is that all employees have the access to an office when they need it and have the freedom to work from home too. This flexibility is crucial today in terms of productivity.
  • Also, investments in technologies that support hybrid work have a broader return on investment as both employers and employees benefit from the model.
  • Having fewer people in an office is beneficial in term of both health and safety when it comes to Covid-19 measures, and is most definitely more cost effective than having all employees in the office at once.

 

  • On the other hand, one of the disadvantages of this working model could be that it might be difficult to know who will be on site at what day of the week. This could be confusing for both parties.

 

  • Furthermore, the company’s teams need to take extra measures to keep employees connected and in the loop about the happenings when they were not on site.
