The Covid-19 pandemic has irreversibly disrupted the old working model and created a tectonic shift globally, pushing the adoption of hybrid workplaces. Remote work has become the norm, with many businesses planning to carry the hybrid office model into the future. The data shows us that:
What would it mean for your organization to go hybrid and what are the benefits?
The definition of hybrid workplace
A hybrid workplace model allows employees to work from home (WFH) or in-office, without creating the dichotomy of "remote vs. in-office" for employees. When implemented correctly and following best practices, a hybrid office strikes the right balance between the two.
This mix gives employees more freedom and autonomy around when to work as well as where. Organizations may end up with a more productive, cost-efficient, and happy workforce.
For businesses - Expect lower overheads. Fewer people in the office means fewer costly office expenses. Thanks to office downsizing (ie. a smaller office), you may be able to spend less on rent and electricity.
For Employees - Remote workers can have savings of € 2,000 to € 6,500 yearly, by cutting costs on commute fees (petrol or transport), eating out, new wardrobes, etc. (inc.com). This creates more time for family, friends, and hobbies instead. A study has found that remote workers get 105 additional hours a year for leisure (Citrix).
Managing and distributing resources effectively when office downsizing is a foolproof way to ensure cost savings. Accessing real-time data will enable you to better control your efforts and minimize spendings – resulting in smarter decisions for your hybrid workplace. For example, our platform will alert you to let you know you are under-utilizing your space. It will offer tailored recommendations to optimize processes, accommodating NewWork requirements.
Time - Less time spent in meetings and on daily commutes leads many employees to feel more focused and productive, as they benefit from fewer distractions.
Productivity - Depending on the nature of the job and personality, some employees are more comfortable at home where they can work quietly (say, writers), while others thrive in a community and office setting – perhaps, those in cash-generating units (CGUs) such as sales teams. By allowing your hybrid team to work to their strengths, the company's productivity also rises.
Health - Let's start by stating the obvious: the Covid-19 pandemic accidentally accelerated the hybrid working model by decreasing health exposure risks in the workplace (aka preventing the spread of the virus). Fewer in-house employees mean that your company may be able to lower the chances of colds, the flu and so on, which may result in fewer sick days.
Happiness - Employees value flexibility and want more autonomy. We know that:
Conclusion: When managed properly, a hybrid workspace can create all these benefits for your business and more. Choosing a platform like yoffix can support your transition.
