Everything you need to know about returning to work with a new work model!

Are you going back to the office, and they’re talking about hybrid working? If you’re hearing a lot about this but don’t know what a hybrid work model is, you need to be aware of all the advantages and disadvantages so that you know exactly what to expect.

What is hybrid working?

Hybrid working is when you work both at home and at the office. There are a couple ways companies can do this, and it might depend on your role and company needs.

Sometimes, it means that some employees are working in the office while others are working from home, based on their roles. Sometimes, it means that there’s a combination of the two – you might be in the office some days and working from home other days. Other times, it can be for a period of time – you might be in the office for a chunk of time and then work from home for a couple months.

The whole point is, it’s a combination of working from home and in the office, depending on organization needs.

Why does hybrid working matter?

The pandemic has really shaken up the way that organizations are conducting business. Due to this massive shift of many more people working from home during the pandemic, we’re not just going to totally revert back to our old ways. Hybrid working is here to stay.

The question that comes next is, what are the pros and cons of hybrid working? And that’s really important to understand for anyone who is going to be shifting to this way of life.

Pros and Cons of Hybrid Working

I want to dive into all the pros and cons of hybrid working with you so that you know exactly what to expect. For that reason, I’ve created a video that explains everything you need to know about the pros and cons of hybrid working.

So, if you’ll be participating in some kind of hybrid model from here on out, it’s really important that you watch this and come to understand exactly what you can expect.

Head on over to YouTube with me so we can chat about all of it there!
