Discovering a hybrid work model
Taking on a hybrid working model is easy with monday.com South Africa.
As the name implies, a hybrid work model consists of two different components working together to achieve the same result. In this case, it refers to a business that has offered employees the opportunity to work from home as well as the office. The split between the two will be determined by the business. It is a working model that embraces the best of both worlds.
Having said this, this concept, although new, has both pros and cons. So, to help you determine whether a hybrid model will work for you, we will look at some of them below.
The benefits of using a hybrid working model with monday.com South Africa
When you take the plunge and decide to give hybrid working a shot, you can look forward to having the ability to hire talented staff from across the globe. This means that you can tap into skill sets that may not currently be available in your country. In the same breath, it also means that you can reach a wider network when it comes to peer knowledge and service sharing services. While this will mean that you need to be aware of multiple time zones, it is something that can easily be managed, especially when you have a project management system on boards such as monday.com South Africa.
The next benefit is giving people the opportunity to adjust their working schedules to accommodate their needs. For example, people with disabilities can work in an environment that caters to their needs, while parents can quickly fetch their kids from school. This renewed sense of freedom will make employees feel a lot more comfortable and happier, ensuring improved productivity.
In terms of your business overhead costs, this will drop quite substantially as you are no longer in need of a big office and all the equipment that goes with it.
In the time of COVID-19, social distancing is an important aspect for businesses. The easiest way to do so is to have the workforce working from home, reducing the potential exposure and spread of the virus, in addition to other diseases.
The downside of a hybrid working model
While there are a lot of benefits that are associated with the method of working, we need to be realistic and consider the not-so-pleasant things. To start with, some employees begin to feel isolated and miss being able to interact with their colleagues. Following this train of thought, employees that go into the office may get more face time with the boss, leading to stronger relationships and quicker promotions.
Coordinating meetings across different time zones and catering to everyone’s schedules can be quite tricky, forcing some people to work irregular hours occasionally. To help work your way around this, we recommend syncing your calendars with Monday.com to see who is available and when, and to ensure that meetings are not forgotten.
This new way of thinking has simplified the lives of many and will continue to do so in the not-so-distant future. To make sure that you and your business are equipped to deal with this “new normal”, Monday.com offers a wide range of team management tools and platform integrations to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
