With the pandemic seemingly under control, lockdown restrictions being lifted, and more people getting vaccinated, the world could be getting back to normal very soon. That also means that the business world, including our workplaces, can get back to normal as well, right? Well, maybe not.
Experts are saying that, although businesses are reopening at full capacity workload and people everywhere are returning to work, there will be some significant changes in what we are used to. The traditional 9-5, 5 days a week, work week might not be the industry standard any more as many businesses have seen just how ineffective and inefficient this really is. During the pandemic, many employees worked remotely from home or other locations and this not only saved money, but it also showed that companies can get just as much productivity out of their employees when they aren’t in the office all day.
The Hybrid Workplace
Now, does this mean we could be transitioning to a work from home setting? Not at all experts say. In fact, while the remote workforce did save companies a lot of time and money, research shows that it is just as important to have the employees in the workplace as well. This new hybrid workplace model could become the industry standard for many businesses around the world.
How Do Employees Feel?
With full-time remote working coming to an end, a new work schedule is emerging which includes three days in the office and two days at home. This new 3 day/2 day split work week offers a wide range of benefits for both employees and business owners. But how do employees feel?
According to a Gallup poll, 72% of white-collar workers continue to work remotely. That number is much higher at 86% for those in computer-oriented and mathematical fields. The poll also showed that 41% of men and 39% of women “would continue working remotely as much as possible because they prefer it.”
