Many companies are deciding whether there's a place in the business world for hybrid work models – combining remote work with office work, that gives more flexibility and sustainability to the employee and possibly the organisation.
One way forward is using the hybrid working model as a part of the reimagined future of work. Combining remote and co-located work opportunities is based on a continuum that works for the organisation and the individual.
Although they were terms that already existed long before the global crisis was generated as a result of the pandemic caused by COVID-19, teleworking and remote work are words that have been incorporated into our vocabulary in a natural way.
There is no doubt that COVID-19 has changed the way we do business. Most companies have had to face the challenge of shifting to a flexible working structure.
New research from Eurofound, the EU's tripartite agency, shows that 47 percent of work has been done remotely in Ireland since the beginning of the pandemic.
