Already 6 out of 10 employees currently perform their duties completely remotely. However, when asked what is the optimal model for doing work, most answer that mixed, according to a study by Grafton Recruitment and CBRE. Experts point out that these issues are solved by a physical office, which has a symbolic dimension, a meeting place and a work space that can be forgotten after leaving.
– We have been dealing with remote working since March. We’ve had time to get used to it, and now it’s time to start systematically planning for it. Most companies will bet on a hybrid model of work, especially since this is what employees expect. It will require considerable skills in planning and strategy, but also in optimal use of the office. (…) Its role will change slightly. It will be, above all, a meeting place, where the common area and access to modern technologies will gain in importance – says Joanna Mroczek, the head of Market Research and Marketing in Poland and CEE region in CBRE.
Hybrid model instead of remote work
According to the survey, employees want to function in a mixed mode – partly at home and partly in the office. Such a desire was declared by 64% of employees. Every tenth person indicates that it is optimal to work all the time in the office, and 26% do not mind remote work full time. In the hybrid work model, as many as 43% of employees count on 3 days of work from home, 26% want to be in the office only one day a week, and 24% want to work remotely for two days out of five. One day working from home is enough for only 6% of employees.
Inconveniences of remote work
The main discomforts of working remotely are limited direct contact with other employees (as indicated by about 40% of respondents), problems with work-life separation, and infrequent exits from home. One in five employees indicate that they lack adequate equipment at home to perform their work and have inadequate conditions due to co-habitants, mainly children, who require a lot of attention.
