PwC Answers: Is Hybrid Working the Future of Work?

Anyone that had to spend their days studying and/or working from home during the pandemic will know that there are definitely pros and cons to living in this way!

It’s one thing to be mandated to stay home (thanks to a superbug!) and another entirely to be able to choose how you work and how this impacts your productivity.

As we emerge into a new year and new ways of working, many organisations are offering Hybrid Work models.

But what is this and is it really the new work reality?

What is Hybrid Working?

Hybrid working – where our work days are split between working in the office and remotely – has fast become the norm across many workplaces.

This working model allows employees to pick which days they work in the office and which days they work from home. Depending on the organisation, there’s usually a ratio that employees need to adhere to.

For example, if your job requires you to work four full days a week, your employer may ask that at least two of those are worked from the office.

Is Hybrid Working a Good Thing?

Thanks to the pandemic, teams have learned they can still succeed when working remotely, and many want to maintain some of the work-life balance this way of working has offered them.

While there are plenty of benefits to this hybrid model for work-life balance, there are some downsides to be aware of too.

PwC shares everything you need to know in their latest article, Balancing Act: The New Equation in Hybrid Working, about making this work format work for all.
