Most businesses today have come to the realization that the traditional 9-5 in-office workday has permanently transitioned to a hybrid environment where employees work from the office some days and from home other days. Although for many firms this transition began over the past several years, the COVID-19 pandemic only served to hasten the process.
Employers and their employees, however, are finding that although there are many advantages to the hybrid work environment, there are also a few challenges.
Aside from the technical and logistical challenges of creating a hybrid workforce (which have largely been addressed at this point), many business owners and HR professionals are now focusing on rebuilding policies and processes to maintain employee engagement and a unified culture. As many business owners will attest, a sound culture is critical to any company’s success with the payoff showing in revenue growth, retention and increased operating income.
