BENEFITS OF THE HYBRID WORKING MODEL
A hybrid working model is a mix of working remotely and in the office or workplace. This model could consist of some days at home and some in the office. Any combination of days in office and home can be a hybrid working model. Many companies established new work from home policies during lockdowns, and even now when some offices are open, they are trying to limit the number of people in an office at any one time. Hybrid workspaces can prove useful in such cases. Apart from this, it has various other advantages.
1. Less commute time– With a hybrid working model, commuting time is reduced. How much depends on how many days the employee goes in, but most have more free time each week. Rather than spending this time in traffic or sitting on a stuffy subway, they can use it to exercise, be with their family, read or cook healthy meals. Having that extra time in the day can have a considerable knock-on benefit to an employee’s life.
2. More work life balance- Less commuting and more flexibility naturally equate to a better work/ life balance for employees. Pre-pandemic, many professionals, particularly those working full-time in a city, would revolve their life around their work. Hence, a hybrid working model can easily enable this balance.
3. Lower cost for employers- If there are no employees in the office all the time, there is no need to pay for the extra electricity, hot drinks, heating, etc. It’ll save money as there is an option to downgrade the size while renting an office space.
4. Better mental health- A hybrid working model can help employees across the board with their mental health. Each employee could consider what balance between in-person and remote working would work best for them and, if possible, can work on this basis. Good employee mental health can increase productivity and job satisfaction and make the workplace a positive place.
