Departure into the hybrid working world.
The combination of home office and office presence creates forward-looking working worlds. The potential is high - make the most of it!
The road to the hybrid workplace and hybrid collaboration
New Work is experiencing a tremendous acceleration right now. Working from home is moving from being taboo to being part of a future-oriented form of work.
The hybrid workplace is becoming established and poses new challenges for companies and employees. Aspects such as virtuality, digitalisation and workplace design play an important role.
The starting position for establishing partially digital or even virtual teams has changed due to current developments. Even companies that have hitherto hardly relied on virtual teams and working from home are moving closer to these forms of work. Accordingly, questions about the optimal design of digital forms of collaboration are coming into focus. A challenge with additional facets: working from home. Working from home confronts employees and organisations with completely new working conditions, both physical and psychological in nature.
We can support you
How? You can find out if you go directly to our offer or learn even more about the topic.
While there are companies that let their employees work exclusively from home and want to eliminate fixed workplaces for the most part in the future, others are relying on ‘staggered’ attendance times, attendance schedules, or situational working-from-home days.
The challenges are mainly found in the areas of
- employee retention,
- employee motivation,
- team collaboration,
- infrastructure and, in particular …
security – both data security and the psychological safety that helps determine an employee’s well-being.
Employees feel psychologically secure when they express freely and openly their concerns, questions, ideas, or opinions, without fear of value judgments or repression. The premise: trust. Other psychological challenges arise from isolation while working at home and lack of rituals associated with the workplace.
Challenges to teamwork and team spirit
One thing seems certain, however: Employees will continue to work from home for several days a week, or even entirely.
They will be able to adjust office and working-from-home hours to their individual range of tasks This individualization of the organization of work requires new forms of co-operation in the team context and digital instruments to support efficient co-operation. In particular, informal interactions and well-rehearsed work processes are changing and must be adapted to different forms of virtuality in a hybrid working world.
