At the beginning of 2020, many companies were firmly thrust into a remote working trajectory. As expected, forward-thinking Tech and IT companies that embrace digital transformation were the ones that continued to thrive in this new environment. For the past year, the high-speed mass adoption of flexible working required employers to redefine and re-examine the workplace, with many companies choosing indefinite remote work. If flexible agility, cloud technology, and secure infrastructures are signs of permanent change, what does this mean for technology firms?
Our latest Career Insight, ‘Performance over Presence’ offers a review of the hybrid-remote approach; a business model which intertwines remote work with working in the office. If the evolving experience-based hybrid approach is to be established, institutions may be likely to explore the potential benefits and caveats to this structure.
With this new-found employee sentiment, does the hybrid-remote model support workers and simultaneously avoid an eroding of company culture? How can leaders manage performance with teams spread out across the U.S.? Can hybrid working arrangements prevent a misalignment between employers and employees?
At Glocomms, these are the questions that have defined our post-pandemic conversations. Perhaps, the hybrid-style approach allows employees to be part of an integrated strategy and offers a window into a more purpose-driven and brighter future for the workplace.
