The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed many things, especially when it comes to traditional workspaces. At the start of the pandemic, nearly every organization across the globe was forced to shift to a remote-work environment. As the pandemic continues, it’s becoming clear that remote work and flexible work options are here to stay. So how can your organization stay ahead of the curve? If you are thinking of offering flexible work options to your employees, here are a few ways to do so from the experts at Prescott HR!
The most obvious of flexible work options is to allow your office to become fully remote. As mentioned above, nearly every organization was forced to work remotely at the start of the pandemic. Some companies have found that their employees are just as successful working from home as they would be in an office setting. There are many advantages to fully remote offices, like less overhead expenses. One of the major benefits of remote work is that you can hire employees from all over the world. As long as the employee can operate under the required time zone, then a fully remote office will allow you to hire from a much bigger pool of potential employees.
If you aren’t quite ready to close down the physical office and move to a fully remote workplace, then hybrid work is an option. Hybrid work has become immensely popular over the last couple of years as companies work to figure out which environment is best for its employees. Hybrid work can include many different arrangements, based on what the employee prefers. Employees can be fully remote, or they can choose to work in the office a few days out of the week. There are many benefits to hybrid work models, especially when it comes to traditional work hours.
Not every employee thrives in the traditional 9-5 work hours; some prefer to work very early or late at night. Hybrid work gives employees the options to get the work done within their time frame, as long as deadlines are being met. Flextime options can be especially helpful to working moms and dads. We are still in the midst of a pandemic and with the recent virus surges, daycares and schools are closing unpredictably. Flextime work allows for working families to complete their tasks at a time that’s best for them and their personal life.
