What is hybrid working… and why go hybrid now?
Hybrid working is an operational structure comprised of three work environments: home, the office and on the move… the best of all worlds! Remote working can benefit productivity by removing the distractions of the office, increase employee wellbeing and offer a better work-life balance by enabling flexibility and taking away the commute.
Most office workers will be familiar with the concepts of flexitime, career breaks, and family-friendly hours. This is because our idea of the working week has drastically changed over the last decade. It now accommodates a more modern structure – one that allows for more flexibility and better balance.
The pandemic has exposed everyone to working from home in some capacity, and many of those employees are now opting for a less frequent commute…or even none at all. Almost 80% of UK workers see the hybrid model – a mix of working at the office, at home, and on the go – as the way forward.
More recently, hybrid working has become a buzzword, with many businesses adopting a hybrid model and marketing it as a benefit for jobseekers looking to work remotely and increase the amount of time spent outside the office. A recent study has shown that 70% of employees want flexible work options while 65% would like to work from home but have more in-person meetings.
