Many were happier working from home, and evidence suggests that if we don’t give them the option to select how they work in the future, they’ll leave. This is because geographic obstacles to employment have decreased in industries where roles can be performed remotely, considerably opening up access to the recruitment market.
The fear of a change in lifestyle – including interruption to family life, the need to move house, or work away from home – has vanished, allowing even the most careful employees to put their talents on the market.
The advantage for businesses is that they have access to a nearly limitless pool of talent, but only if they can develop a business plan that attracts the top talent. To summarise, in order to retain current employees or recruit new team members, a new model must provide individuals with options to match their requirements.
The most important factors that have been identified for a successful hybrid working model are:
- Training and Development
- Managing productivity
- Offering recognition
