Although more than three-quarters of firms have embraced hybrid working, many employers are unsure whether this new way of working will last.
As a result of these findings, the CIPD is urging employers to take advantage of these changes in order to develop and embed new ways of working that will ultimately benefit organisations and their people.
Ben Willmott, head of public policy at the CIPD, explained, “The post-Covid future of work is still undecided. Now’s the time for employers to engage with their people and continue to refine and embed new ways of working that suit both the organisation and the workforce.
“Developing effective hybrid working arrangements can help employers attract and retain a more diverse workforce while enhancing employee wellbeing, work-life balance and productivity. They can also help employees easily and productively work from home when there are disruptions to their working day, like the rail strikes this week, or when adverse weather strikes.”
