Work flexibility is consistently cited as a post-pandemic trend, and many employers are already introducing hybrid work models in their reopening plans. A hybrid workplace is a flexible model designed to support a workforce of both on-site and remote employees.
In some arrangements, employees are on-site on set days. In other cases, employees may be able to request a specific schedule. Employers may also consider whether certain departments or roles need to work on-site or can be just as effective working remotely full-time.
Challenges of Hybrid Models
Like any new initiative or strategy, a hybrid workplace also has its challenges. Employees will be collaborating from varying locations and may even be using new technologies, impacting an organization’s culture and operations. However, employers can reduce the prevalence or impact of such challenges by being intentional about decisions.
