The COVID pandemic changed the corporate workplace forever. With the impact of the Covid pandemic on the corporate world resulting in the hybrid workplace, it’s time to rethink the way we work. A global survey by McKinsey finds that nine out of ten companies indicated the future workplace will be that of a hybrid model.
A hybrid workplace is a mix of an in-office and remote work force that aims to offer flexibility to support to employees. This model may have large effects in the way the workforce chooses to work. For example, 54% of US respondents expect to work from home one day a week or less while 26% expect to work from home just two or three days a week. And a global survey by Steelcase across 10 countries and 32,000 respondents finds that most people want to work from home to a degree, but don’t want to work from home exclusively. across 10 countries and 32,000 respondents finds that most people want to work from home to a degree, but don’t want to work from home exclusively.

Showing that when your organization uses a seamless collaboration tool, it enables your employees to be more productive when working remotely and continue to maintain the same level of productivity whether in-office or at home.
Gartner also predicts that by 2024, in-person meetings will drop from 60% to 25%, driven by remote work and the changing workforce demographics.
