Hybrid work means that employees split their workdays between home and office space. On certain days they continue to work from home, as they have been for almost all of last year, and on others, depending on the necessity and requirement, they work from the office. Over the past year, many leading businesses announced that hybrid and remote work is here to stay. Although the pandemic served as the biggest factor in this shift, remote and hybrid work settings are increasingly becoming a permanent fixture in the business world.
Over the years, companies have invested extensively in office spaces. Leading technology companies invested in redesigning their workspaces to encourage innovation and collaboration. With lesser in-person interaction and informal communication opportunities, building processes that cultivate openness, trust, and collaboration will become even more important. Thus, business and HR leaders will have to overhaul their processes and workflows to build a culture that is effective digitally as well as in the physical workplace.
Given the trends accelerated by the pandemic—the success of remote work on a large scale, the migration of workers to less-expensive locales, the redesigning of office space to accommodate social distancing—executive leaders need to quickly articulate what working in the office is meant to accomplish. That clarity will enable them to reimagine how and where their work gets done, how much office space they need and how to support employees to be effective in any work environment.
This includes creating processes that support remote work, such as flexible work hours, company meetings, time tracking, Keep increasing flexibility and ownership.
Platforms such as TeamOB that allow businesses to monitor user activity using time tracking, remote attendance and real time team room are being seen as particularly useful by managers overseeing hybrid workforces.
