Managing A Hybrid Workforce

As technology continues to evolve, an increasing number of jobs can be performed on a computer or phone in the comfort of one’s own home. According to a 2017 report, 2.9 per cent of the American workforce 3.9 million employees work from home at least half the time, more than double what it was in 2005. Employees working from home enjoy better work-life balance, can work in their most productive hours and do not spend excessive time and money in long commutes. Working remotely usually increases employees’ productivity, simply because they are happier.

Use Technology That Supports Your Culture

The first essential tool that you need is a great messaging system that gives the feeling that everyone is working together in the same place. An environment that encourages lots of sharing and collaboration supports both remote and co-located employees.
