Five Benefits of Implementing a Hybrid Working Model
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way companies around the world operate. Indeed, it is estimated that 66% of executives are considering introducing remote working and 63% of high growth businesses utilise Hybrid Working models.
This article sets out to explain why you ought to introduce a hybrid working model in your business and how you can streamline your remote workforce management with Tensor’s human resources software.
Benefits of Hybrid Working
1. Improves Employees well-being and productivity
Workers often have to spend many hours in cars or trains commuting to work in the office. Sometimes this can lead to relocations that force employees to be separated from their families and loved ones. Hybrid working, by allowing employees to work from home, improves the well-being of employees, who may also be more productive in the long run.
2. Reduction of costs for businesses & employees
Businesses reduce real estate costs, building costs and get more available space that can be used for other activities or hire more employees without investing in other facilities. Similarly, employees save commuting costs and other expenses such as dining out on lunch breaks.
3. Increased ability to attract talent from around the world
For the reasons stated above, workers, including top talent, are attracted to remote working. Moreover, as they would be working from home, it opens up opportunities for companies to recruit from all over the UK or even the world.
4. Improvement of retention rates
This new working model has become so popular and demanded by workers that companies that do not offer hybrid work are losing employees who move to companies that do.
5. Improving your brand image
The hybrid work model not only shows that the company is modern and up-to-date, but also combats environmental pollution. In fact, by reducing commuting and office presence, there is a reduction in consumption of petrol, electricity, plastic, etc.
