Hybrid Workplace Model: Accommodating employee’s aspiration

My list


Hybrid Work Place (HWP) is the current buzzword but seldom do the management and leaders realise its intensity and how it operates in the Indian context. Future is highly uncertain and unpredictable –no one can speculate what is in the store tomorrow. But this pandemic has made the employees accept the fact that they can work remotely. Mandatory staying in the office and tolerating the phenomena of micro-management is not a liability anymore.

Primarily, companies are approving of implementing the 3-2-2 hybrid workplace model where an employee can go to the office for 2 or 3 days a week based on his/her Flexibility. Do you think this is going to be the ultimate solution for the employee’s needs and aspirations?

IT hubs in India are concentrated mainly in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune and Hyderabad. The majority of people who are working there are migrants from other states.Due to this pandemic, most people went back to their hometown and their families. A survey result shows 60% of employees are unwilling to return to their workplace. They want a policy in an organisation to opt for permanent work-from-home because they feel more flexible and productive. 20% of employees believe that permanent work from home is not feasible because this will create a disconnected workforce, and 20% of the employees are still unsure of what they want. An underlying reason could be the pandemic,where people have lost their families and friends. This experience has changed the employee’s perception of work culture.It is imperative to realize that mental well-being, staying and taking care of the family is equally important as their job and money. It is high time to ponder over how to accommodate these two aspirations.
