There has been a lot of talk about the future of work after the pandemic. To understand the situation in the organizations better, Howspace did a global survey on hybrid work that focused on the expectations and challenges people connect with hybrid work. Now the results are in and here are a few of the most important takeaways!
The results indicate that despite 94% of surveyed respondents feeling well-equipped to transition to a hybrid work model, leadership teams still do not have clarity for how to lead teams and work together with people as the results show very different preferences for sharing their thoughts and opinions within an organization.
A third of the respondents said that post-COVID working model decisions are being made within the leadership team – meaning that employees have not been asked about their preferences. A further 20% of respondents who work as employees do not feel that leadership is taking action based on their feedback for how, where, and when they’d like to work.
When talking about the challenges of hybrid work, the respondents highlighted these three as the biggest challenges:
1) Not feeling connected to colleagues
2) Maintaining a strong and consistent organizational culture
3) Feeling overwhelmed with more meetings and messages
What these results tell us is that leaders should start considering what kind of hybrid culture and workplace they are going to build. Hybrid work is here to stay and those organizations who can best respond to the challenges are the ones most likely to keep and find talent.
