Over the last two years, it’s been plain to see: The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything about the way we live our lives. It’s had a clear impact on where we go, who we see, and how we carry ourselves from day to day. And when it comes to the office environment, it’s also brought about major changes in how we approach workplace modernization. How could it not? After all, we’ve been forced to reinvent the concept of the “workplace” itself.
And it’s worth nothing that this reinvention appears to be permanent. Forbes recently explored this trend in depth – according to a recent survey, today’s employees are overwhelmingly in favor of continuing to work remotely, even after the current pandemic has come and gone. Growmotely research indicates that 97% of people hope to have at least some flexibility between working remotely and staying in-office moving forward.
“For employers, this means that adopting a hybrid model of work is going to be critical in hiring and retaining talent in the near future,” explained Ashira Prossack, an internationally recognized communication trainer and coach. “Flexibility in work schedules and not requiring employees to spend 100% of their time in the office will be a distinguishing factor as employees evaluate job offers and choose their place of work.”
Wait a second – why hybrid, you ask? That’s because, as much as people appreciate having the choice to work remotely, they don’t necessarily want to do it all the time. According to the Growmotely data, while 97% of people like remote work, only 61% say they prefer to be fully remote. This leaves a large swath of the population that’s in between – enjoying remote work, but desiring the flexibility to work out of the office sometimes. This means, in IT, you need to give people the technology options they need to juggle the two.
