The pandemic brought about the hybrid working burst in lots of people’s lives, but has it changed the employee experience for the better?
Needs and preferences have changed significantly for employees in the last 18 months. Employees now look not only for stability but also financial protection and wellness. In order to accommodate our new reality, many organisations have launched a hybrid system combining remote working and site-based working. This brings with it an innovative and flexible arrangement, allowing employees to work around other commitments if required, and providing that element of trust, which in-turn supports an ideal employee experience.
Globally many organisations have decided to keep a hybrid working model in order to maintain productivity. On one hand, the social integration produced when colleagues share time together in the office and on the other hand, having the opportunity of making the most of their time and work life balance when working from home. Creating a hybrid plan entails a new strategic function for the business, which creates value throughout the experience of the team members.
In this context, many companies are implementing new measures to develop a better employee experience. When employees are satisfied with the company culture, and the values of the business, it generates a sense of belonging and security, that can only have a positive impact throughout their productivity but also when dealing with clients.
Hybrid working is a good example of the equation happy employees = happy clients.
