Deep dive: Seven rules for ‘hybrid’ remote and office workingTuesday 02 February 2021
There’s a chance that, come the spring of 2021, everything will just return to normal. Covid vaccines will be rolled out. City centres will fill up. Trains, skies and motorways will clog up. Pret will again run out of those nice duck rolls by midday.
But then that seems pretty unlikely.
“I think what we have learned this year is that we had a dysfunctional relationship with our workplaces,” says Bruce Daisley, a former Twitter executive and now a big-time business podcaster. “Commuting for an hour each way to sit at your desk answering emails – in hindsight that looks like an act of collective lunacy.”
Deloitte research into employees across seven European countries suggests that more than 100 million people in Europe have made the shift to remote working during the Covid-19 crisis, with nearly 45 million doing so for the first time. Many are not rushing to return to the office. Instead, employers are embracing “hybrid working”, blending on-site and off-site approaches.
