The Challenges of Adopting a Hybrid Workplace

All the challenges you should be aware of if you’re considering to adopt a hybrid workplace.

Hybrid working has been around for quite some time. But, as Covid-19 crisis kicked in, many teams started working from home. Remote working policies were set-up everywhere, and businesses began to adjust to a whole new working way. 

Now that we are seeing an ease of restrictions and are welcoming back most of our tenants to Madison Offices, some businesses have made the decision to split the time working at the office and home. 

However, a hybrid work arrangement isn’t for everyone.

Structure:

Some people need the structure of office space or are looking for a more social environment. 

There’s a risk that hybrid teams will lose the camaraderie that face-to-face working brings.

According to Gartner, remote working can marginalise certain people who may find it harder for their voices to be heard. While hybrid working can go some way towards offsetting this impact, as it’s not 100% remote, it still may not be the right solution for you.

Division:

Another challenge is division. 

Division can happen when some parts of a hybrid team are in the office, and others are working online. 

Sometimes in-office workers can also perceive their remote colleagues not to be working as hard as they are due to the fact they are not being overseen in person. 

On the other hand, remote workers might see their office co-workers as having better advancement opportunities, since managers see them daily. 

While there are a few cons to hybrid work models, there are plenty of advantages, from giving employees a better work-life balance to improved productivity. 

This why at Madison Offices we offer a range of office rentals suitable for small to larger corporates to help you maximise your teams productivity regardless whether you choose hybrid workplace or not.
