If you are looking for a silver lining to the pandemic, one is the positive impact it has had on remote work. Before the “largest remote work experiment in history” many employers were skeptical of their teams working from home. After years of avoiding it, 2020 gave many employers no choice but to have their employees work from home. Now the world is beginning to re-open, but many employees don’t want to return to their pre-pandemic work environment.
A recent survey from Accenture showed that 83% of workers prefer a hybrid model in which they can work remotely at least 25% of the time. So let’s talk about a hybrid…
First of all, when we say hybrid work model we are referring to a blend of working both remotely (often from home) and in an office. The exact breakdown of how much time is spent in each location is often up to the employee, role, and company. Hybrid work is a personal favorite as it can often result in the best work-life balance and productivity.
In addition to giving employees autonomy to maximize things like peak performance time and introvert/extrovert needs, hybrid work also has benefits for organizations like reduced overhead and talent recruitment benefits. Instead of rattling on about hybrid work, I’ll share an infographic to give you some key points at a glance.
