As more people get vaccinated and we begin to round the corner on the pandemic, employees and companies are looking ahead at what will come next. And this is where a hybrid model comes in.
In a hybrid workplace model, employees have the flexibility to work in different spaces, including corporate offices, coworking spaces, public spaces and from home.
To find out more about how the future of work will be shaped by a hybrid approach, WeWork partnered with independent research company Workplace Intelligence to conduct a blind survey of 1,000 C-suite and 1,000 non-C-suite employees. The survey found, among other things, that:
64% of employees would pay for access to an office space, and 75% would give up at least one benefit or perk for the freedom to choose their work environment.
79% of the C-Suite plan to let their employees split their time between corporate offices and remote working, if their job allows for it. 76% say they’re likely to give their employees a stipend to work from home or a coworking space.
Post-Covid, employees want to split their time between their company HQ, home and other locations such as satellite offices, coworking spaces, and public ‘third spaces’ like a library or café. But employees who are more satisfied and engaged at work want to spend twice as much time in these ‘other locations’, compared to their less satisfied and less engaged colleagues.
