The Benefits Of Hybrid Work
The benefits of this model are clear…
Gets Parents One Step Closer To Work-Life Balance
I don’t think we’ll ever achieve work-life balance 100% but this type of workplace certainly gets parents one step closer.
Hybrid work gives parents the best of both worlds giving them options to work from an office and remotely so that they still get to spend time at home with their family.
Hybrid work helps to increase wellbeing. From a mental health standpoint, there is less stress because the triggers from working in a traditional workplace are no longer there.
With less stress comes more productivity. The freedom to work from home, in an office, or a combination of the two helps increase employee satisfaction. In return, employers see an uptick in their productivity and job performance.
