Technology expert Glen Palmer-Barnes, of Ace IT Solutions, has been reading details of a study into the impact of home working on productivity that was carried out before the pandemic.
Researchers found company and employee resilience may be enhanced by remote work. And also discovered there was no overall drop in the level of output.
Glen said: “Hybrid working has gone from being a privilege a few years ago, to something staff are starting to expect.
“I think work was heading in this direction anyway. The pandemic just accelerated the change.
"Smart employers are realising they need to be fully flexible to keep their people happy.
“While not all job roles can move to a mix of home and office working, those that do can see a greater level of employee satisfaction.”
