Today, leaders in all industries are tasked with creating new work environments and cultures. 39 % of knowledge workers could leave if you insist on a ‘hard return’ to fully on-site work. This is simply not a conversation of where we work but how we will work moving forward.
“Over the past year, no area has undergone more rapid transformation than the way we work. Employee expectations are changing, and we will need to define productivity much more broadly — inclusive of collaboration, learning, and wellbeing to drive career advancement for every worker, including frontline and knowledge workers, as well as for new graduates and those who are in the workforce today. All this needs to be done with flexibility in when, where, and how people work.” - Satya Nadella, CEO at Microsoft
Leaders today need to take Hybrid Work models Serious
Employee engagement, job satisfaction, and Talent acquisition are three critical issues that leaders face when it comes to the workforce. More and more employees are seeking out hybrid work arrangements that allow them to have more control over their time and how they work. In order to attract and retain top talent, organizations need to consider implementing a hybrid work model.
There are many different types of hybrid work models that can be tailored to fit the needs of your organization. The key is finding the right model and then creating a workplace culture that supports it. Employees want flexibility and the ability to work when and where they want. Leaders who can provide this type of environment will be successful in attracting and retaining top talent.
