The much anticipated post-pandemic return to work has gotten off to a very rocky start. Getting hybrid work to work it seems is definitely tougher than going all-in on in-person or all-remote. A recent survey conducted by BambooHR revealed that one in three (37%) office workers actually said they feel worse being in the office than they did at their lowest point during remote work—and we can all remember some pretty low lows from the past year. Making all-or-none decisions as well as the wrong hybrid model creates a Catch-22 for employers: force employees to report back to their desks and some will quit. Close the office and others will jump ship. It seems flexibility has soared to the top of employee demands almost overnight, catching companies flat-footed without a playbook.
What’s the right recipe to get the best of both worlds? How can your company reap the benefits of hybrid work and avoid the headaches?
