Hybrid to be Default for 80% of Workforce by 2024 

A recent report published by insights specialists Incisiv has found that by 2024 hybrid work will be the default working model for more than 80 per cent of the workforce. 

Despite the report found that onsite employees will more than double from 21 per cent to 44 per cent, while the numbers of those working offsite will drop by more than a quarter.

However, the data does allow for the fact that as companies and organisations develop their own culture-based paradigms, there will not be a one-size to fit all of them.

Survey of C-suite Executives

The State of the Industry: Future of Work report was put together by Incisiv in conjunction with internet access providers AT&T Business and software developers Dubber. It surveyed over 300 chief officers, executives and senior managers on technology resources, AI, analytics, collaboration and more. The research also showed that in order to satisfy the requirements of a hybrid work environment and maintain maximum productivity, businesses and organisations would need to consider upgrading their infrastructure and evaluating their data security methods.

Permanent Change of Work Environment

The apparent cause for all this change has been the global COVID-19 pandemic that began in March 2020 and the subsequent mandatory obligation to lockdown and work from home. This has meant the trajectory of the work environment has changed irrevocably, something C-suite executives already know, but there is a problem. New expectations of a changing workforce mean that culture, processes and technology are lagging.

Remote Work Decline

Although the global pandemic provided a glimpse into the remote working model, the survey found pure remote work will see a drastic decline of a third by 2024. Companies will encourage their workforce back into the office with a hybrid work model. A ‘distributed work model’ will become the industry norm, according to 68 per cent of firms.

Disconnected Executives

There is a disconnect due to the workforce’s dispersal, with 64% of chief executives stating they would like to have their personnel on-site. They continued to be concerned about losing control over the workers at the same time. Executives are also utilising AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) for training and more effective sales techniques throughout the course of the next 1.5 years in a hybrid and remote working environment.
