“Hybrid workplace” refers to a mixture of remote working and onsite work. Some companies have their employees working on site four days a week, some on an as-needed basis, and others land somewhere in between. The main point is that there is an office to go into and employees are expected to use it as needed.
A hybrid workplace can also have a mixture of fully-remote workers who cannot commute into the office on a regular basis. These employees are not hybrid employees, but they contribute to the hybrid environment, which constitutes a mixture of in-person and virtual communication. In-office requirements may vary among teams, departments, or the company as a whole.
Hybrid work models are attractive because they facilitate a greater work-life balance, enhancing the employee experience. As a result, employees are more engaged on the job. Employers benefit by having more productive, stable, and healthy employees.
With the rise of hybrid work, some companies are putting office space management on the back burner, when they should be doing the exact opposite. With employees working on site for moments that matter, teams need the right resources to make the most of their in-person collaboration time. Offices are struggling to support meeting spaces in an office where room squatters are abundant, taking advantage of the flexible workplace.
