Global talent, local impact: Redefining success with hybrid work strategies
Organisations that find the right blend of office and remote working stand to benefit from wider talent pools, more engaged employees and greater diversity in workforces
The pandemic ushered in an era of remote working, with organisations suddenly forced to adapt to restrictions on movement by rapidly setting up staff to work from home.
Nearly four years on from the first lockdown, many organisations still make use of a hybrid model. Research by recruitment firm Hays finds 61% of employers offer a blend of working remotely and in-office work, while 39% of staff say they work in this way.
But there are also signs that this may be a temporary situation; according to the KPMG CEO Outlook survey, 63% of UK CEOs believe there will be a full return to in-office working by 2026. Nationwide recently made headlines by insisting staff return to the office at least two days a week, while many US businesses including Apple, Zoom and Google have issued similar mandates.To access please sign in.
