Are Hybrid Work Models Here to Stay?

It’s clear that the pandemic has accelerated trends around the future of work that were nascent pre-pandemic, and are now being implemented, so it seems, with intensity and speed never imagined before. In particular, the “hybrid work models”, a mandated combination of remote-from-home and in-the-office work that allows the employer to reduce office space seems to be the most common and obvious adjustment to new work models. But are all employers ready to jump ship onto the new hybrid wave, or are some operating under the assumption that this is a temporary solution, and that business as usual – all-hands-on-office-desks – will return in a post-pandemic economy? With our panel of HR executives and experts from the industry and academia on both sides of the Atlantic, we will be discussing the following questions:

  • What do we know about the advantages of hybrid work, and what are the disadvantages?
  • Are international companies implementing hybrid models across their locations or are there regional differences?
  • How are HR executives viewing this trend?
  • What are the greater organizational, societal, and economic implications?
