Is A Hybrid Work Model Right For You?

By Juliana Levinson on 03.30.21

Last year, businesses were thrust into a remote work model, needing to adapt on the fly as working from home became the safest option. As the world returns to normal, one must decide how to handle returning to the office. Some may choose to stay remote, while others will gladly come back full time. But what about both? The hybrid model is a combination of at-home and in-person office time. If your business is considering this option, here is what you need to know before implementing a hybrid work plan, and how a shared workspace can help you.

Logistic Obstacles

A hybrid work model is not without challenges and takes some planning to be successful. If you are part of a larger team, you need to coordinate schedules to ensure people have different days in the office, or that there is enough room for everyone to be safely distanced together. You will also need to take time to rearrange standing meetings. Plan group meetings for office days, and leave one-on-one calls for when you are in the privacy of your home. Each week, take a look at what is on your plate and determine which to-do list items are best suited for the workplace or home office.

Another consideration is your technology. Will you need a laptop to transport back and forth? Are all files uploaded to the cloud? What will be kept at the office or at home? Audit your work tools prior to beginning a hybrid plan to avoid frustration and delays. Implement services that are great for hybrid settings, such as Google Drive or Sharepoint, or buying a lightweight laptop.

A Space For Every Need

Hybrid work means you are not limiting yourself to one workspace solution. A shared workspace perfectly compliments this plan because of access to a variety of spaces. From meeting rooms to private suites to lounge areas, when in the office, there is a space for every need. Instead of needing multiple settings, all are under one roof at places like AdvantEdge Workspaces. The best part of a shared workspace is flexibility. In these uncertain times, you can confidently rent knowing you can size up or down depending on needs.

Although you might come to love your shared workspace enough to ditch hybrid, the reality is that having work-from-home days is still essential for many people. Hybrid work allows you to plan your schedule around your needs. This type of work fits around your schedule to create the perfect mix of shared and personal spaces.
