Did you know that working from home (WFH) is centuries old?
Think about it: leather workers, blacksmiths, tailors, carpenters, and many others were working from their home. Much later, factories were created.
So, can we say that history repeats itself?
I’m letting you decide 😊.
Fast forward to 2020. The COVID pandemic forces people to work from home. WFH Research shows that: “WFH doubled every 15 years pre-pandemic. The increase in WFH during the pandemic was equal to 30 years of pre-pandemic growth”.
That’s just WOW, don’t you think?
Now, there are two main models when working from home: fully remote or hybrid work, where people work both from home and the office, depending on internal company procedures.
In this guide, we’re going to tackle the latter: hybrid work. And there are several topics we want to cover in this guide:
- What does the data show? What do employees want? What do employers want?
- Which are the advantages and disadvantages of hybrid work? In order to make an informed choice, both sides of the story must be known.
- Which models of hybrid work are there?
- How can you introduce hybrid work? How can you prepare the setup?
- How should you create a hybrid work policy that works?
- Which are the tools that can help you manage hybrid work and allow you to bring friction to a minimum?
- How can you get employees to the office?
- Hybrid work stories with a happy ending.
Do we have a plan?
