A Successful Hybrid Workplace Model
As many workplaces reopen their offices, businesses are renegotiating the role of the physical workplace. While many believed that remote work culture would be a boon to productivity and hamper company culture, these concerns are thankfully unfounded. Hybrid workplaces allow your business to create a more inclusive culture, increase productivity, and encourage creativity. At the Neuroleadership Institute, we have the experience necessary to help your organization adopt a successful hybrid work model and transform your business to meet its 21st-century potential.
The Opposition to Hybrid Work… Debunked
Since the invention of hybrid work, we’ve seen misinterpretations in abundance. Thankfully, many of the myths surrounding lost productivity and culture have been entirely unfounded. At NLI, we’ve debunked the following concerns about hybrid work:
- Productivity will drop: Research has consistently suggested that hybrid work allows workers to increase their productivity. Despite the pandemic’s stressors, 94% of 800 organizations have reported that their productivity while hybrid working stayed the same or improved.
- Culture will suffer: Hybrid working arrangements allow businesses to strengthen their workplace culture. Simply put, your office does not define your culture — your employees do.
- Innovation will suffer: Despite the lack of in-person brainstorming sessions, hybrid working is just as effective at allowing individuals to create innovative ideas. Hybrid work gives team members the opportunity to develop ideas individually and share them over video calls.
- Hybrid work is inherently unfair: With hybrid workers being just as productive and innovative as their counterparts, at-home workers can receive promotions without being held to a higher standard than in-office employees. Managers must combat their distance bias to recognize, promote, and retain the best talent.
