Hybrid work is about adapting to how teams work best, creating experiences that reach everyone’s maximum potential and organisational goals.
Many organisations are planning a post lockdown hybrid virtual model that combines remote working with time in the office. This decision follows solid productivity increases during the pandemic, while productivity may have gone up, many employees report feeling anxious, isolated, and burned out.
Unless leaders/business owners address the sources of employees’ anxiety while working from home, pandemic-style productivity gains may prove unsustainable in the future. This is because anxiety can reduce job satisfaction, and negatively affect interpersonal relationships with colleagues, decreasing work performance.
Hybrid work model has pros and cons and it is important how organisational leaders can build a robust model.
Organisations need to create an inclusive future of work by empowering a workforce that can work from anywhere, at any time. Optimising remote workers and distributed teams for performance, productivity, and agility.
