What is hybrid working?

By definition, hybrid working is simply a working model that incorporates both office-based and remote working – depending on the needs of the business and the individual. We’re seeing businesses of all shapes and sizes begin to adapt to these alternative ways of working with technology driving that decision-making process. And that’s where Daisy comes in. Our hybrid working solutions are a culmination of 30 years experience as a leader in business IT and communications. During that time, we’ve helped countless workers thrive in both office and remote environments while providing reliable, secure solutions and state-of-the-art facilities across multiple locations.

Why switch to a hybrid working model?

Remote and Homeworking

The way we work has been in transition for some time as we become less and less reliant on traditional office-based models. COVID-19 only accelerated that transition as organisations across the globe scrambled to switch to homeworking models in the first quarter of 2020.

It is estimated that by 2025, 70% of the UK’s workforce will be working remotely for a minimum of five days a month meaning that whilst we consider 2020/2021 to be the “year of remote working”, it’s only the beginning. To harness the benefits of a remote workforce in the long term, organisations need the right solutions and products in place to scale at the same pace as their needs.

Serviced Office Space

The pros of a serviced office are two-fold. From a business point of view, they provide the necessary space required from a traditional bricks-and-mortar office without the headache of setting it up or ongoing maintenance. Serviced offices are furnished, fully equipped and reduce the reliance on costly, long-term property contracts. And, from a well-being perspective, they can provide a welcome base for employees without dedicated workspaces at home, or open up options to those who simply want to “go to work” or collaborate and meet with colleagues face to face.

In our 2021 survey of business and technology leaders, around 1 in 4 respondents told us that they planned to downsize office space. Similarly, Work in Mind, a knowledge platform dedicated to the connection between healthy buildings and workplace well-being, predicts that 2021 will be the year of the “smaller office” with enquiries for such space soaring in the first quarter of this year.

Recovery Space

One side-effect of the COVID-19 pandemic is the light that was shone on how vulnerable businesses can be when faced with unprecedented challenges. As a result, demand for flexible space for contingency purposes is unfortunately likely to increase soon. Such offerings make for ideal disaster recovery workspaces because they are furnished, managed and, crucially, connected, meaning businesses can move in and be operational almost instantly.

If it’s not already the case, every UK organisation should now be reviewing, testing and updating their business continuity and disaster recovery plans to minimise disruption to operations in both the short and long term. After all, the longer it takes to rectify an issue, the harder it is to recover.
