The benefits of hybrid work for employers and employees

The future of the workforce is hybrid. Multiple studies have shown that local employees prefer a flexible work arrangement, and they are, in fact, happier with this type of setup. However, a lot of companies and leaders are still on the fence about transitioning from full onsite and full remote to a hybrid work setup.

 

This arrangement has been a hot topic of discussion ever since the pandemic slowed down. It has been much-talked-about that even local senators have called upon different industries to “give hybrid work a chance.” To those who are still in doubt about a new but not necessarily new work arrangement, we are listing down some useful benefits of a hybrid work setup.

A flexible work setup minimizes “The Great Resignation”

Hybrid work reduces attrition. 

 

According to a recent study, the Philippines posted a whopping 176% in voluntary resignation across all industries. Employees now look for better opportunities such as better compensation, benefits, career growth opportunities, and a more flexible work arrangement. A lot of them also resign from their jobs because of the lack of work-life balance, uncertainty over the pandemic, and abrupt changes in the working scheme – changing from remote work to suddenly reporting to the office everyday. 

 

Hybrid work provides flexibility both for the leaders and employees, at the same time providing a work-life-balance that employees prefer. And through this, hybrid work can keep employees and prevent further attrition while ensuring business continuity. 

A balanced time for work and leisure promotes a healthy lifestyle

Hybrid work promotes work-life balance.

 

A lot of employees find a greater work-life balance with a flexible work arrangement. Hybrid work in particular offers the flexibility of being able to work from home and report to the office on certain days. This takes out the stress of commuting to work every single day, evidently wasting time that could be used for more important things. In addition, the “free time” that employees get from working remotely can be used to advance their skills which could help benefit the company in the long run. 

Enjoy the benefits of more savings

Hybrid work saves employees and employers money.

 

It’s no surprise that employees save a lot when a hybrid work model is implemented. They save on transportation costs, food costs, and a lot more. But did you know that a hybrid work model can also save employers on costs? With a limited amount of employees at the office, the company can save on operating, maintenance, and realty costs. According to a study, some work leaders have also acknowledged this remote and hybrid work benefit.

 

Flexible work conditions bring a different working perspective

Hybrid work increases productivity.

 

A hybrid work setup can provide a refreshing change of working environment, which can improve an employee’s focus and productivity. Since a company offers flexibility, they are more likely to balance their workload and accountability when it comes to their output.

 

Better team collaboration and communication for flexible work setups

Hybrid work improves collaboration and team relationships.

 

Since a hybrid setup provides both face-to-face and remote interactions and collaborations, this improves collaboration between team members. It allows for better communication and relationships which could lead to much more productive output. Collaboration tools in unified platforms such as Telavi Cloud make communication easier whether the employees are at the office or outside, ensuring productivity anytime and anywhere.
