Working remotely part time or full time has been a reality for many businesses throughout the pandemic. Coming out of restrictions post-pandemic, many businesses have looked to adopt a hybrid working model to accommodate their employees and ensure they are feeling supported and happy with a mix of both an in-office and work from home environment.
At DLO, we’ve seen businesses moving their offices to accommodate hybrid models, or re-designing their existing office to maximize efficiency and space.
Here’s everything you need to know about the hybrid office and remote working model:
The benefits of a work from home and office hybrid model
As mental health has come to the forefront for individuals and families throughout the pandemic, a flexible schedule of collaborative office working and self-directed home working may be the best of both worlds for your employees. It’s important to let your employees socialize and mingle with their coworkers to foster healthy relationships and culture within the office, while also respecting the need for a flex schedule. Hybrid office models can also be a highly attractive recruiting tool for businesses.
Moving to a new office to accommodate a hybrid model
Once you have determined what hybrid model works for your business and staff, you can plan out how much space you truly need. As many Vancouver offices have high price tags for lease, this may be the perfect time for you to downsize and move to a new office to accommodate your business’ new working model. Equally, businesses who expanded during the pandemic may also be looking to move offices into a larger space, with the ability to scale and grow using hot desks or shared working stations. Working with a professional Office Move Coordinator can help clarify some of these needs and work through space plans and solutions for your business.
Transforming your existing office space into a hybrid model
Now that you have settled on which hybrid model you and your staff prefer, it’s time to transform your existing office space to accommodate it. If you’ve downsized your office, you may realize that you have a lot of furniture you don’t have the need for anymore (whether it’s due to limited office space or its simply out of style).
