What a few years ago seemed to us as the ''future'' has become today's reality ​

For the past two years, has been transforming companies for hybrid reality.
We provide this research with you to share the best practices and help you to transform
into hybrid workforce management efficientlyas well as avoid various pitfalls. 
Several years ago, companies have already begun to reorganize their corporation in a way of remote work, flexible working hours, and digital transformation to combine online and offline work,
but the COVID-19 outbreak has accelerated this transition a lot. ln the past six months, remote teams and virtual meetings have taken center stage as businesses determine a better way to work through the crisis and beyond. Businesses are rapidly moving towards digital transformation, looking for an effective way to connect online and offline offices without losing productivity and teamwork.
Within the next few years, much of the workforce will likely experience significant shifts, mainly driven by a few prominent current trends. 

Going Hybrid 
ln a pandemic period, remote work is more a necessity associated with personal safety and health preservation than whim.
The most striking data provided by Buffer*,








suggests that 99% of employees want to partially rework their entire life.
Do we need any more confirmation that remote work is here to stay?
During the pandemic, employees have shown that they can be just as effective from anywhere
in the world. Moreover, 83% of employees, remote or on-site,
say that a remote work opportunity would make them feel happier at their job,
but next to this is the fact that not all people could work remotely.
For many employees the presence of other family members at home,
the lack of space for organizing a home office and other reason is an insurmountable challenge,
and such employees want to return to their companies' offices.
Both working completely on-site and working completely remotely have their pros and cons,
but we are sure that neither will exist by itself anymore. 

The Hybrid Model: Adaptive and lnterchangeable 
According to Gartner*, the hybrid workforce model ensures the workforce has the ability to
flow throughvarious work sites ranging from remote-solo locations, to remote micro-sites of small populations,
to traditional concentrated facilities (office, factory, retail, etc.).
The Hybrid workforce model is one of flexibility, adaptability and shared ownership on the part of employers and employees. 







Communicating with leading companies and their HR representatives and continuously researching the market,
we have collected statistics that will help you to confirm the fact that the future of work
will be hybrid and to decide the direction of corporate culture reshaping.
We have shown in figures how the work environment and employee behavior have changed,
as well as what reality we will be living soon. 

The world today 
The world today can be divided into three eras: pre-Covid, Pandemic period, post-Covid.
This division helps to clearly see the difference in the corporate culture trends.
For example, look at how the trends of remodeling jobs in the United States have changed in 2020.
lf earlier this type of work was considered a privilege and highly valued, now it is simply vital. Health and safety,
which are at risk when working in the office, have taken priority. 

Change in remote work trends due to COVID-19 in US 









Remote work is not a trend it's here to stay - McKinsey & Company 
What are the benefits of remote work for employees?  Number one is a flexible schedule as was expected.
Time is the greatest value of a modern person and the ability to choose,
a schedule directly affects the balance and wellbeing of an employee's life. 







"My personal opinions about remote work have been turned upside down over the past two months.
 I expect this will have a lasting influence on the future of work ... and home."  Rich Barton, CEO of Zillow

At the same time 
Many people feel discomfort working remotely.
Among the biggest gripes with remote work are the inability to separate work from home life and loneliness. 
Younger workers, in particular, are concerned about losing the less obvious career-boosting benefits of office life:
opportunities to network with more experienced colleagues, readily access to mentors,
and the ability to poke their neighbors for help (harder to do when they're 17 time zones away). 

What's your biggest struggle with working remotely? 







There is a solution 
Employees simply need the ability to work in the office on certain days/periods in order to maintain
the work-life balance. And only companies that move to a hybrid workforce management model will
be able to retain their teams and even improve their performance.
Companies and employees need to adapt to this balancing online and offline lives.
ln this case a hybrid working model seems to be a perfect solution for both sides. 
With proper software combination of telecommuting and office work is possible and even leads to better results. 
While it's true that fewer businesses will return to traditional  ecוffoenvironments,
the future of work is more than remote teams, it's a different way of work - hybrid.
While the jury is still out what is better, what we do know is that hybrid work options win the vote almost every time.
Giving your people the autonomy and trusting them to work where they prefer,
you can dramatically increase levels of engagement and loyalty. 

"We do think we need to create more flexibility and more hybrid models." 
Sundar Pichai, CEO at Google
