What are the top trends that will shape the future workplace, in a hybrid working world?
Prevalent adoption of hybrid work has introduced new workstyles and requirements that will impact how business leaders approach workplace design and investment over the long term. As a result, more organisations are adopting hybrid work as the default arrangement as various markets in Asia Pacific began easing pandemic-related restrictions.
According to the 2021 EY Work Reimagined Employer Survey, 84% of companies in the region plan to make moderate to extensive hybrid work changes and are actively promoting hybrid work to attract and retain talent. The same survey also noted employees’ preference for flexibility in where and when they work, with many stating hybrid work will help increase productivity and creativity.
Remote and hybrid work have redefined people’s idea of workplace as they know it, causing shifts in workstyles as well as disparity in work experiences. To truly succeed in the hybrid era, business leaders will need to devise workplace strategies and investments that will enable workers to have a more equitable work experience regardless of where they are working from, for optimal collaboration and productivity.
