How Hybrid Working can work for you

In the on-going development of the ways we manage the pandemic, the past couple of years have presented plenty of opportunity for businesses. The return to the workplace is where employers can create new and more effective operating models that can be helpful in navigating a world that is still a bit uncertain.

Heralded “the future of work”, a hybrid working model can solve many a problem for businesses and answer many questions for an entire generation of employees such as better productivity, retaining and attracting the best talent, reducing costs, and healthier work-life balances to name a few. And, according to the Office of National Statistics (ONS), 85% of remote workers report wanting to use a hybrid approach of both home and office-based methods.

And that’s where Daisy comes in. Our hybrid working solutions are a culmination of more than 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.

Remote and Homeworking

Research suggests that there is a danger of a disconnect between what is required from employers and what is being offered. And with the job market now more competitive than ever before, many existing and prospective employees are re-evaluating their relationships with work. Remote working options are now simply expected as standard and countless studies reinforce the idea that remote employees are happier, healthier and more in engaged in their roles. In fact, they are 20% more productive and can help slash office costs.

In order to harness the benefits of a remote workforce – whether that’s part of the time or all of the time - organisations need the right solutions and products in place to scale at the same pace as the change in needs, and ones that will provide the same “in the office” experience wherever the work is being done.

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.
