Hybrid working – tomorrow’s professional world

Hybrid working – tomorrow’s professional world

In an increasingly networked environment, hybrid working is gaining in importance. It allows employees to be increasingly flexible and complete their work, irrespective of time and place. Simultaneously, it offers companies the opportunity to save costs and boost the rate of employee satisfaction.

The advantages of hybrid working

Hybrid working offers numerous advantages to both employees and companies. For employees, it means greater flexibility since they can do their work from any location and thus strike a better work-life balance. At the same time, they save time and money on commuting. Companies can reduce costs through hybrid working, as they need less office space and thus save on rent and operating costs. In addition, employee satisfaction can be increased through their enhanced level of flexibility, which can lead to higher motivation and productivity.

Challenges in the implementation of hybrid working models

This new working model harbours challenges for both sides.

There are certain questions that workers should answer to find out if the hybrid working model is suitable for them.

Can I clearly separate working time and free time? Do I have the space to work undisturbed in my home-based office? Can I organise myself so that I work at least as efficiently as in the office? Do I have the opportunity to exchange ideas with my team on a regular basis?

The last point, in particular, is crucial. This is because it is important to prevent the formation of so-called ‘silos’, as well as the complete isolation of individuals or the lack of informal exchange with colleagues within the company.

From the employer’s side, it is, therefore, important to think about new forms of exchange in the team on a virtual level. And to coordinate office days so that enough staff are physically present at the same time. A reduced process of exchange within the team can paralyse the creative forces at work, resulting in less innovation, which can end up falling by the wayside.


Good equipment promotes productivity

A complete set of equipment is essential for hybrid working, so that employees can also work productively and efficiently from home or on the road. This includes not only a powerful laptop or PC, but also a reliable internet connection, an ergonomic keyboard and mouse, as well as a high-quality webcam and headset for videoconferencing. If you travel a lot, you should definitely not do without eye protection filters and a bag for transporting your equipment. Companies should ensure that their employees have the necessary equipment to complete their work tasks effectively, from any location. Good equipment has been shown to increase not only staff productivity, but also their feelings of satisfaction and motivation, which ultimately contributes to a successful hybrid working model.
