The future of work is hybrid

The Hybrid Work Model

Organizations that offer the freedom to work from home are:

Аttractive to potential employees

Not restricted to local job markets

Easier to scale up or down and achieve 24/7 coverage

Less burdened by office space and business travel overheads

Environmentally friendly and sustainable.

There is no going back to the work model that prevailed before the pandemic.

The challenges

The case for switching to hybrid is powerful. But it’s not an easy transition to make.

Want to transition to a hybrid work model?
Staying aligned with priorities

Communicating the company mission and goals is not easy for leadership under normal circumstances, let alone when dealing with a remote workforce.

Keeping informed

Communicating or staying on top of developments and metrics becomes more difficult and time-consuming.

Isolation

Sharing the ‘tribal knowledge’ of how to get things done and who can help becomes a real challenge when simply looking up from your desk and asking a question is no longer an option.

The risk of dividing the workforce

Failing to keep remote workers involved can culminate in them feeling dislocated and like second-class citizens compared to their office-based counterparts.

The trust issue

The number one challenge for leadership is typically referred to as ‘accountability’ when what is really meant is ‘trust’. The issue is not being able to keep tabs on remote team members. 

Remote monitoring systems are not the solution. They encourage a culture of command and control, making the old idea that employees work better in the office a self-fulfilling prophecy.
