It is now widely acknowledged that a full return to office-based work is unlikely across a range of industries. Instead, we are moving towards a hybrid way of working combining the benefits of remote working with those of being office based.
Although this may be an easier step for large businesses who may have had a degree of flexible or remote working pre-pandemic, what does it mean for small or medium sized enterprises [SMEs]?
Research carried out by GetApp amongst decision makers and employees in SMEs indicated that hybrid work is here to stay for smaller businesses too. The vast majority [70%] of business leaders who are currently using a hybrid work model plan to continue after the pandemic and 29% that are currently working remotely will follow.
