Combining in-office and remote working models presents a range of challenges to employers. To tackle the disruption, organizations are proactively experimenting with new ways of working. In this article at Business 2 Community, Amy Drader elaborates on the hybrid working model. Since employees do not want to give up remote working, it is time to explore new strategies to maximize productivity.
How Prepared Are You?
Regardless of speculation on the future of work, global enterprises are bridging the gap between pre-and post-pandemic work setup. Some employees are keen to return to their office desks while others are anxious about frequent contact with people. According to a recent Morning Consult survey, about 75 percent of respondents wish to continue working remotely.
The hybrid working model offers a limited set of people to work from the office while others can continue working from home. The teams can maintain a schedule to switch shifts and ensure everyone gets equal opportunities to work remotely. Additionally, they are busy addressing significant concerns, including staff pay, advanced technology needs, and office sanitation.
Team performance in the hybrid model is a primary concern. Dividing teams between home and office can affect communication and business operations. So, employee training in the hybrid work model is a priority. These strategies can help you fix emerging disparities and maximize performance:
People working in the office have access to company resources and leaders. By spreading awareness, companies can maintain uniformity and empower employees with equally distributed access and resources. Documentation of assigned tasks is another great way of keeping track of all team members.Frequent communication between remote and office staff will increase leaders’ responsibilities. To establish a shared understanding, assign the task of conveying information to the “communication buddies” to reduce the frequency of team meetings.Prioritize defining client requirements per project, cost, and deadline for both remote and office teams. Set goals and initiate changes at the primary phase to maintain consistency in work. Define success benchmarks to leave an impact and acknowledge the contribution of both teams to strengthen cooperation.
