Most companies are heading toward a hybrid working model, where employees rotate in and out of offices with shared spaces. This might become effective from the second quarter this year.
Here are the top findings of the LinkedIn poll we sent out earlier.
Remote work is the way people want to work
We took a poll amongst our database of candidates and found the shift in positive attitude regarding remote work is significant. 73% of those polled said they want to work fully remote, 24% are happy to work in a hybrid model, and a mere 3% want to work in an office full time.
A remote job is a position which can be performed from any location away from the office premises. Technology plays a big part in remote jobs where communication and the exact work happens on a device.
Hybrid model is here to stay
Even though most people want to work in a fully remote environment, some of them still want to occasionally meet and work in an office. According to our poll, 24% of people prefer a hybrid model and the reason being that the hybrid working model allows employees to combine onsite and offsite work as per their choice.
A hybrid model promotes work/life balance as well as the benefits of working onsite, i.e. building relationships and networking with co-workers.
With the changing work environment, most people have adjusted to working remotely from their homes. With labor shortages in today’s market, the job seeker has an upper hand and is looking for flexibility. Flexibility and working remotely are the new norms.
Before the pandemic, employees were tied to the place where companies were located, as 2020 passed, it became obvious we were entering a new age in a work environment where employees could live in places where they wanted to and work from there. Workers could have the best of both worlds.
