Combine the benefits of office, home and remote/mobile working in a flexible way.
Hybrid or blended working is an approach that combines the benefits of home and remote/mobile working in a flexible way; it empowers the individual to work from anywhere that best suits, whether that’s at home, in the office, a coffee shop or on the move between locations.
Why embrace the blended/hybrid workplace model?
Hybrid working reinforces the premise that work is no longer a place; it’s an activity. It offers both employers and employees a wealth of benefits if adopted and implemented successfully.
How do we create a safe and compelling working environment that supports a hybrid working model?
As businesses consider re-opening their workspace, they’re all too aware that employee expectations have changed. Employees want the office environment to provide the same autonomy they get from working remotely with the added benefit of face-to-face collaboration, access to alternative tools and technology and opportunities for seamless migration between different work modes.
Creating an authentic workplace community not only contributes to people’s wellbeing; it leads to better business outcomes too. People feeling part of a community boosts productivity, engagement, innovation and commitment. It’s no surprise then that people rank ‘connection to people’ and ‘purpose’ among the top reasons for wanting to return to the workplace, which presents leaders with an opportunity to drive engagement and ‘build back better’.
A hybrid/blended working approach relies on a robust company culture and an environment that backs it up. Company culture becomes more than ‘brand identity’ and a ‘mission statement’ in the hybrid working model; It aligns objectives so that employers and employees have shared outcomes. It supports growth, connectivity, innovation, creativity and wellbeing with people at the heart of an organisation’s culture.
