Hybrid working is the ‘new normal’, ready to steal the thunder from remote working. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic enforced a widespread remote working culture. With the pandemic situation in control and aggressive vaccination drives in progress, work from home is now changing to ‘hybrid work’ to help transition to complete work from office.
Many organisations have initiated hybrid work right away while a few are experimenting with pilot modes to study the success of such work modes. TimesJobs surveyed 861 HR managers working across diverse industry verticals to understand their way of working and their ways to implement ‘hybrid work’ and its impact on the workforce.
