The Rise Of Hybrid Working

Over the last year and a half, businesses have worked hard to adapt to the challenges of remote working, with many investing in new technology to keep communications flowing. The business response to the pandemic has demonstrated that, with the right tools, employees can work from home and, for the most part, are happy to.

With a ‘return to normal’ now on the horizon, many businesses will opt for a mixture of remote working and office working, commonly referred to as Hybrid Working”.

Businesses leaders recognise the benefits of adopting hybrid working, including reduced travel costs, fewer sick days, higher productivity and a better work-life balance. With leading organisations like PWC and Nationwide announcing their intention to adopt a hybrid working model, other businesses are expected to follow suit.

At the beginning of ‘the great remote working experiment’, businesses rushed to acquire new technology that would enable remote working. But will the technology that has served businesses well throughout the last year continue to work effectively when employees work from the office once again?

For the most part, the answer is yes, but with some important caveats.

Questions Worth Considering:

  • Will office communications systems that were in place pre-pandemic, continue to provide a return on investment?
  • How can we ensure the security of our company network when some staff split their time between working from the office and working at home?
  • Can we connect our existing meeting room equipment to our chosen video meetings platform?
  • How can we ensure we make the best possible use of the office space we have and ensure employee working environments are safe?
