The hybrid work model is becoming standard in 2022

How much has changed in the work environment in recent times, isn’t it?

The unexpected arrival of the pandemic took the market by surprise. Adaptation to the new reality needed to be accelerated and with a certain dose of improvisation: entire teams were sent to the home office.

This work regime was already on the radar of many professionals, but it became the “new normal”, overnight, in the lives of thousands of workers.

After almost two years, the greater flexibility obtained in the work routine and the operational benefits that resulted from the remote model were consolidated, both among professionals and among institutions.

The high levels of productivity and the reduced costs obtained made us believe that no one is willing to abandon remote work.

This is also what the research by the consultancy KPMG points out. According to the study, 85% of companies that migrated to the home office, due to the health crisis, intend to assume a hybrid work model in 2022.

That is, 85% of companies plan to adopt the system that encompasses both remote work and face-to-face work, mixing face-to-face activities in the offices with work routines at home.

Of the 287 entrepreneurs interviewed, only 15% expressed the intention to fully resume face-to-face work. The rest, which must opt for a hybrid regime, is divided in terms of programming between the two systems:

  • 29% will continue to work remotely twice a week;
  • 29% intend to work remotely three times a week;
  • 11% plan to keep teams at home five days a week;
  • 9% want to keep teams at home four times a week;
  • 7% will stay home only one day a week.

The return to the physical office, even in a hybrid work regime, can also be put in check and postponed due to the frenetic spread of Ômicron and, without wanting to be pessimistic, to the possible emergence of new variants of Covid.

Therefore, if there is a return to the physical office, even in a hybrid format, sanitary measures must also be consolidated in the work environment. In this same survey, it is also possible to find which actions companies will adopt to ensure the health of their employees during the on-site workdays.

  • Among the most important actions are:
  • Require the use of a mask and use of alcohol gel (37%);
  • Reduce the number of employees in the offices (8%);
  • Increase the distance between bays and workstations (2%).

Therefore, the adoption of new protocols and/or the strengthening of existing ones, in work routines, will also be maintained.

We arrived in 2022 willing to maintain, in the work environment, the necessary adaptations to achieve high levels of productivity, cost reduction and health safety.

Therefore, we can see that the demand for digital platforms will continue to grow. Many workplaces are interested in ensuring that work activities are not restricted to geographic boundaries.

Therefore, every company must research and adopt complete digital solutions, with all the necessary work tools on a single platform, uniting employees in environments that go beyond physical space.

For the hybrid regime to be a success – keeping teams productive and with high performance in their daily tasks – I recommend our virtual office: MyHive.
