Nobody enjoyed the year 2020 but it taught us a lot about modern working.
For centuries, work has been centred around the workplace. While some worked remotely, it was niche. 2020 was the year it was widely adopted.
And we liked it. Or, at least, aspects of it.
Certain tasks are easier without office distractions but, really, sometimes not having to commute is just much nicer. And cheaper.
And the office has benefits too. Not just socially, but aspects of collaboration and culture play a big part too.
The obvious answer then, as you may well know, is to adopt the best of both worlds, when safe to do so. Which, according to the UK Government, could be as soon as Easter.
It might not be so easy
While overall a switch to hybrid working is likely to be highly beneficial, there are possible implications that will need addressing.
A long-term distributed workforce will impact company culture, productivity, human resourcing, cyber security and more.
As an IT services company that has always focused on helping to “enable great work from anywhere”, we want to help companies make the hybrid transition a seamless one.
Which is why we’re launching our virtual event: Moving to a Hybrid Workplace Strategy.
The event for business leaders looking to plan ahead for the new normal and create a successful long-term hybrid workplace.
We have lots more to announce over the coming weeks but you can signup or view more today.
