What is hybrid work?
A hybrid working model is flexible, permitting employees to work partly in the office and partly remotely from any place they find convenient.
What are the benefits of hybrid working?
- Happy and committed employees. Having the flexibility and freedom to choose what days they are at the office and what days they are working from home leads to employees having a balanced workload and work satisfaction. And happy employees stick around their workplaces longer.
- Enhanced and improved work culture. Employees are motivated when they control their schedules, such as coming to the office for big team meetings or company events. When employees can switch between remote and on-site work, they’re more likely to come to the office to support the company’s mission.
- Reduced operational costs. Hybrid work reduces costs as fewer desks, and office supplies are needed. Companies can also save thousands on real estate. Moreover, with hybrid work, employees spend less on the daily commute.
What are examples of hybrid working models?
Many big organizations are successfully using the hybrid workplace model. For example, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, and IBM have opted to harmonize the best of on-site and remote working.
