An Insight into Hybrid Working

20th September 2023
Hybrid working is a popular model that allows employees to work both remotely and in the office, creating a better work-life balance.

The types of hybrid working

  • Flexible hybrid work model: Employees have the freedom of when and where they work. This option allows them to schedule their working time around their lives and can be an excellent way to build trust, increasing loyalty and job satisfaction.

  • Fixed hybrid work model: The company will set the days and times employees are allowed to work remotely and in the office.

  • Office-first hybrid work model: The organisation expects employees to be in the office a few days a week and provides the option to work remotely on the remaining days, e.g., working in the office for three days or remote working for two days.

  • Remote - first hybrid work model: Employees primarily work remotely with the occasional visit to the office or co-working space for team-based activities.

What are the benefits of hybrid working?

The advantage of hybrid working is that you are cutting the commute on the days you are remote working, which reduces time sitting in traffic on your way to the office. Furthermore, many companies have seen reduced absences and an increase in job satisfaction from their employees.

Depending on the hybrid work model you implement, consider downsizing your current office space if fewer people are in the office, reducing overall office costs.

What are the drawbacks of hybrid working?

Hybrid working can be difficult for good collaboration and communication when remote working. As well as this, the hybrid working model isn't suitable for some industries, such as manufacturing, teaching and nursing.
