From a traditional workplace to a hybrid workplace

A traditional workplace where employees come at 9 and leave at 5 is not productive anymore. In 2022, the hybrid work model will dominate the world of work. As a result, transforming your workplace into a hybrid workplace is a way to secure well-being and productivity. The hybrid working trend benefits are many: from supporting your employees' flexible daily schedules to more efficient space management.

The benefits of hybrid working

One size doesn't fit all, and that's why letting your employees decide where they want to work can be miraculous for their well-being. Adopting a hybrid way of working can drive efficiency and job satisfaction. Giving your employees the option to either work from a hybrid workplace such as your office or from home is a future-proof strategy with multiple benefits, such as:  

Increased employee well-being

Letting your employees decide which days they can come to the office can significantly boost their sense of autonomy. Employees with higher levels of autonomy in their work tend to feel an elevated sense job satisfaction which can positively affect their well-being. At the same time, allowing your employees to adjust the light and temperature of their working spaces in the office can have a significant positive effect on their mood. At the same time, having the right tools in place to promote collaboration and social interaction in your organization can better team relationships and increase their sense of belonging in your organization. Adding to these perks a shared and well-defined organizational vision that allows employees to be creative while productive can skyrocket well-being.

A resilient hybrid work culture

Hiring for a cultural fit isn’t enough. Creating an inclusive culture, however, where employees can bring different perspectives, set of values and backgrounds is what defines a hybrid work culture. Having the right smart office technology in place that enables them to book or cancel office shifts, find the most suited place to work and connect with colleagues is an imperative first step for a hybrid work culture.  

Reduced office costs

Managing an office – especially a half occupied office – can be difficult. However, knowing your employee behavioral patterns will help you reduce your office costs on time. For example, if you find out that half of your employees prefer to work from home you can reconsider moving to a smaller office or find ways to bring them back to the office again.

How to successfully implement a hybrid working model

How you can successfully implement a hybrid working model, is by dynamically managing supply and demand. Dynamic occupancy management of office facilities is the key to most of the hybrid working challenges: avoiding strong peaks and gaps in workplace occupancy, avoiding manual workload in coordination, efficient use of catering and truly giving employees flexibility,

Dynamic occupancy management is very simple. With today's technology, you can easily anticipate supply and demand by making workplace facilities bookable. This does not only keep facility management efficient, it also gives you insights in the needs of your employees. So how does this work exactly? Let's dive into the most trending hybrid working tools.
