Many businesses are now reconsidering the way they work. The covid-19 pandemic has disrupted established routines and changed the way we work. Many employees felt that despite some of the difficulties working from home presented, it had advantages in that they could concentrate better on certain tasks and reduced time spend communing and costs associated.
What is hybrid working?
Many companies are now investing into creating a hybrid office that merges elements of remote working with the traditional work setting to allow employees to either work remotely or from the office but still providing the benefits of each space.
Hybrid workspaces are typically much more flexible spaces where employees have the option to choose a space to work from that suits their working style and the task they have at hand. For example, some employees may prefer a more informal and social working environment where as others may require a private space to concentrate. The hybrid office provides a variety of areas to suit the various working requirements of employees, empowering employees to make their own choices and as a result increasing productivity and employee satisfaction.
The Value of Hybrid Working
Hybrid working brings many benefits in that it allows employees to work when and how they are most productive. The flexibility it brings also allows for a better work life balance giving employees more control over their schedules deciding when they will get their work done along with all the other tasks outside of work that need to be done.
Hybrid working also allows businesses to recruit talent from further a field as people aren’t required to be in the office for the full working week, meaning that for some businesses the talent pool is significantly increased, enhancing the competitive edge.
