The hybrid work model has been gaining a lot of attention and the popular consensus is that most organizations will incorporate some kind of work flexibility for the returning workforce. Therefore the hybrid workplace model will be widely adopted by most companies post pandemic.
But what are the benefits for and expectations of companies going hybrid?
- A survey by IDC carried out in August 2020 found that before the Covid-19 pandemic, 8.4% of people in the US worked from home full or part-time, and in the post-crisis future, that figure is expected to be 15.8%
- Because flexible work has proven to be highly beneficial, the future will incorporate hybrid work.
- A hybrid approach combines the benefits of working from home with the core reasons we use offices.
Does working from home actually work?
Like everything, it depends on who you ask. It depends on their circumstances, their home setup, their job role, their individual personality, and whether or not they have noisy kids.
