Permanent Flexibility: Reimagining Remote Working Post-Covid

  • February 18, 2021

As global Covid vaccination programmes show promising signs of curbing the pandemic, many organisations are reimagining remote working for the future. Following a year of homeworking, companies are planning for a combination of remote and on-site working post-Covid – but how can they make the model a success?

This report outlines key considerations for implementing a hybrid workforce, evaluates what hybrid work strategies may succeed, and provides case studies of work already underway within multi-national organisations.

Questions explored include:

  • Will corporate cultures erode without face-to-face interaction?
  • Are teams as productive remotely, and how can we monitor productivity in a hybrid environment?
  • Does a remote environment provide the same opportunity for innovation?
  • Will talent stagnate without opportunities for informal learning?
  • Does communication and inclusion suffer when teams work in a hybrid way?
  • How do we monitor and support wellbeing in a hybrid workforce?
  • How does policy need to change to reflect new hybrid working strategies?

The coronavirus pandemic has shown employers what is possible and has debunked many assumptions about the feasibility of hybrid remote working. Current circumstances present an oppurtunity to rethink policies and approaches that are responsive to the needs of different employee groups and individuals.
