After a year of remote work and work from home it is anticipated most companies will adopt a more flexible or hybrid work policy as the workforce starts returning to the office post pandemic.
The key question is will the hybrid work model work for every business? What are the pros and cons of going hybrid?
Today we are living in a largely separated world, connected by technology. While we moved to a work-from-home model in the spring out of necessity, many employees have become used to working from home and its many conveniences. Gen Y and Millennial workers no longer see work-from-home as a perk, rather it’s become a requirement. The relentless demand for talent will now make work-from-home a competitive and differentiating feature.
Although leaders have discovered that remote work can be just as productive, many have also noticed that it has some shortcomings. Balancing the company and employee needs has left CEOs with hard decisions about how we will work moving forward.
