The hybrid workplace

The hybrid format is proving to be more than a passing trend. This shift is because most of the long-term effects of the pandemic are largely unknown, incorporating remote working into the business model is prudent.

Moreover, it’s in line with what employees want. Now that workers have had a taste of such a choice, flexibility comes up repeatedly, as one of the most important things for employees. And, as people become more conscious of the social and environmental impact of what we do, companies have a responsibility to cut unnecessary travel.



Soft skills to help you thrive in the hybrid workplace

  • Emotional intelligence (EQ) is one of those skills that can serve you well if you are not face-to-face with someone: we need to pay extra attention to our tone, explaining context, and develop awareness as to how we are coming across.
  • Leadership and social influence. Leadership and the ability to influence others are a result of understanding people. 
  • Taking initiative from the inside: Companies need teams of people that can think creatively and take the initiative to innovate within their role. “Intrapreneurship” within companies will become a skill that is in demand.
