Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses have devised different working environments and arrangements to continue their operations while protecting their employees. Now that the world is slowly recovering, hybrid working has proven to be an effective arrangement for various companies.
In today’s post, office space provider Connecticut Business Centers shares why the hybrid work model is effective.
The traditional office setup can no longer work like it used to because companies now have to consider a different set of health and safety protocols. Work-from-home arrangements aren’t a good fit for everyone as some businesses and jobs require people to be on-site so as not to affect productivity. That said, hybrid working is a good middle ground that would allow companies to promote work/life balance, ensure the safety of their employees and maintain consistent production.
A typical office space is usually leased long-term, which may not be cost-effective for companies, considering how unstable the current situation is. Flexible offices offer an alternative by providing facilities, services and on-site amenities at a fraction of the cost. This option also allows businesses to scale up or down without being tied to the expenses of a long-term office lease.
Productivity is often a significant concern when it comes to remote work. It’s common for management to view a fully remote work setup as an inefficient way to manage a workforce. However, studies have shown that many businesses have actually maintained and even surpassed productivity quotas in certain industries while their employees are working remotely. But since remote work isn’t ideal for all businesses, a hybrid working arrangement should be a good compromise when it comes to balancing safety and company compliance. Furthermore, some tasks are best done together in a physical office where face-to-face communication is more efficient and convenient for those involved.
