The Hybrid Work Policy: Why It's a Game-Changer?

Shefali Vasave | January 20, 2022 | 118 views

How to Prepare for a Successful Transition from Traditional to a Hybrid Work Environment

With work becoming remote, workplace culture has undergone a 360-degree transformation. This rapid change has compelled numerous organizations across the globe to synchronize their work among various scattered teams. Old office work policies are no longer relevant. They are finding it difficult to repurpose these work policies in the new work ecosystem. That is why a hybrid work culture is necessary. The combination of working from home and the office partly means work policies need to be molded to fit into the new hybrid model.

To prepare for a successful transition from traditional workplace policies to a hybrid work environment, organizations must dive deep and evaluate their ways of working, their workplace culture, the way they track performance, and the initiatives they have in place for employee engagement.

Why Does a Hybrid Work Policy Matter?

A hybrid working policy is a flexible work model that has been designed to meet the needs of both employers and employees. With an added emphasis on creating a work-life balance today, coupled with the need to work remotely, a hybrid work policy is the answer to creating future-ready workplaces.

Organizations have started discovering numerous benefits of a hybrid working policy. Not only do employees get more time to spend more time with their families, but it also eliminates the hassle of commuting every day. On the other hand, companies can save rental costs on expensive office spaces and witness an increase in productivity by enabling remote work and maximizing work hours.

There are different ways of implementing a hybrid work policy. Employers can, for example, create an open office space or allow part-time work schedules for employees to balance their personal and professional lives. Another way of implementing a hybrid work policy is by allowing flexi work hours so that working parents can take care of their children without having to fret about their scheduled work timings.


The Benefits of Hybrid Work Policies for Employees and Employers

While the traditional workplace has its own set of benefits, it falls short in some areas. For instance, recruiters are geographically limited when it comes to hiring talent. They have to restrict themselves to a particular geographical area and, therefore, have limited access to highly talented candidates. Additionally, they have to compete with other organizations in terms of the salaries they are offering, benefits, and other perks. 

“Remote working, digitization in processes, and workflow automation are all going to be a part and parcel of everyday non-traditional workspace, and entrepreneurs who go with this flow will definitely see great success.”

- Ravi Kikan, Director Marketing, Online Sales & Growth at ZingHR

A hybrid work model can provide the following benefits to employers:


Improves Access to Skilled Labor

Organizations that adopt a hybrid work policy don’t have to be geographically restricted. In a survey conducted in 2019 by the International Workplace Group, 32% stated that a flexible work location was more important to them than a prestigious designation within the company. On the other hand, 83% of the global respondents said that work location was the major deciding factor if they wanted to take that job. This also facilitates creating a diverse and inclusive workforce.

Cost-effective Work Setups

Organizations can enjoy reduced office operational costs due to hybrid work policies. They can negotiate better office spaces at lower rental costs. They can also make flexible work arrangements in a smaller space, further driving down office rentals. 

Better Benefits

With a reduction in overhead costs, organizations can choose to transfer the benefits to employees by providing better perks and compensation packages. This ensures they are more competitive in their industry and attract more candidates.


Increased Productivity

Flexible working hours with the ability to balance work and life are proven to impact productivity positively. According to a survey conducted by Stanford over a period of nine months, it has been reported to increase productivity by almost 13%. It also helps to engage employees, which further leads to a boost in total productivity.

A hybrid work culture is a win-win for both employers and employees. It can help employees work better and have more control over their job duties. Here are some of the advantages to employees:

Flexibility

Flexibility is the most significant advantage of hybrid work policies for employees. They can plan their working hours to be more effective and help employees work during their most productive hours. This ensures that all employees are working at their optimum level. It has been observed that working from home substantially reduces absenteeism.


Zero Commute Time

Not having to commute to the office saves a lot of time. Employees can dedicate more time to their well-being and things that matter. Saving commute time can improve productivity to a great extent. It helps in balancing work and life as they can spend some quality time with their families and loved ones.


More Career Opportunities

As more and more companies adopt complete remote hybrid work policies, job seekers are no longer restricted to applying for jobs in their specific locations. With the world opening virtually, candidates can explore more possibilities and growth in their careers.

Conclusion: Preparing Your Organization for Future Change with Flexible Working Policies

The future of work will continue to evolve because technology has fundamentally changed the way we work. Long before the COVID-19 pandemic, remote working continued to be accepted across the tech world. Today, it has become the norm across industries. The definition of work has also changed, with people preferring to do more creative, project-based work. And if businesses want to attract and maintain their top talent, they will need to think about what they can do to be more flexible in their policies.

Some businesses are already making changes in their workplace to prepare for this future. They are changing their traditional 9-5 culture, which is restrictive and outdated in today’s world, into a more modern hybrid work model with flexible working hours and a hybrid working culture. For instance, major tech companies have become flag bearers for permanent remote work. Facebook announced that about 50% of its 45,000-strong workforce could go remote in the next 5 to 10 years.

Change is the only constant, and if businesses are to succeed in this ever-changing environment, they must adopt a flexible approach. The new hybrid work culture has proven to be an effective way of managing workdays. It is a combination of onsite and remote working, which provides employees with more freedom in their work schedule. This freedom leads to higher productivity and happier employees.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are some of the challenges of the hybrid work culture?

A significant challenge is that it takes time to adjust to this new kind of work culture. Employees might feel like they are missing out on part of the process and social dynamics by not being able to physically be at their workplace. Hybrid work cultures are also difficult for companies because it's hard to predict what the future will look like and how this transition will affect them long-term.


What are some of the benefits of the hybrid work model?

Some advantages that come along with this hybrid work model are less absenteeism, improved health, reduced overhead costs, and improved productivity.

Increasing ROI through Digital Recruitment Marketing

Article | March 3, 2022

Marketing and recruitment are two of the most critical functions in a business. However, just as marketing is key to helping a business sustain in a cutthroat market and position itself as a go-to provider, recruitment marketing is key to winning the war for talent and positioning a company as a coveted workplace. Digital recruitment marketing, there are more avenues to recruit top talent than ever before. Not only does it offer a wide reach, but also the ability to keep track of campaigns and measure the return on investment from these efforts. In this way, you can build a talent community that ensures you have a steady supply of qualified candidates. This is why implementing solid recruitment marketing campaigns is so crucial. However, just like marketing, recruitment marketing requires investment, and marketing leaders must be able to justify these investments to their higher-ups. At its core, recruitment marketing shares much of its process with marketing. It helps to take lessons from how marketing leaders convince higher-ups to invest in their strategies to build a talent pipeline. Building a Business Case for Digital Recruitment Marketing Talent acquisition through recruitment marketing is undeniably effective. But it goes without saying that marketing is an expensive endeavour and when done without due diligence, it can cost your company a lot more than necessary and without yielding the results you’re looking for. In addition, with the same principles used to manage marketing campaigns, you have a better chance of justifying investment in digital advertising to recruit talent. By tweaking a few crucial pieces of marketing tools and techniques, you can craft a marketing strategy aligned to your recruitment objectives. Not all companies have the digital presence that large organizations can boast of. This is why reaching and engaging candidates, positioning an employer brand and designing an online candidate experience are so important. Digital advertising can address all of these objectives by helping create reach and awareness. But first, let’s talk about the key recruitment marketing metrics to track when implementing digital recruitment marketing campaigns. Metrics to Map for Tracking Recruitment Marketing ROI Your ability to build a case with recruitment marketing ROI is limited if you are not tracking the ROI from your digital advertising campaigns. Social Media You cannot track word of mouth, but you can track online conversations. No, it doesn’t mean you can hear what people are saying about the company, but social media recruitment marketing can uncover numerous insights. You can see how much of your audience your posts or ads are reaching, whether they are engaging with your posts by commenting, sharing, or liking it, and if it’s converting visitors into applicants. Pay-Per-Click Campaigns PPC campaigns are a common digital recruitment marketing strategy and are especially effective for reaching an intent-based audience looking for specific roles. PPC ensures your ad is at the top of the pile and gets immediate attention. Time to Hire From applying for a position to being hired, time-to-hire substantially demonstrates the success of your campaign. It requires you to track all the dates and stages of an application’s lifecycle. But what does it have to do with recruitment marketing? According to a study by Inc., the best candidates get recruited within 10 days on average, and your recruitment marketing campaign should contribute towards reducing your average time-to-hire for it to be considered effective. To Conclude These are just a few of the critical metrics you need to track in order to build a case for investing in recruitment marketing. A talent shortage and a competitive hiring landscape make it difficult to find the right talent on time. With digital advertising, you can create result-oriented campaigns that accelerate screening and evaluating candidates by reaching the right candidate personas. A recruitment marketing platform can help you actualize your campaign and adopt seasoned marketing strategies as part of your talent acquisition efforts.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. This holds particularly true when it comes to employee onboarding. It's a new hire's introduction to the organization and the experience has a significant impact on employee retention. Unfortunately, that's why it's rare to see many employees with years of tenure. Research by Future Workplace found that 91% of Millennials expect to stay in a job for less than 3 years. Companies lose 25% of all new employees within the first year, according to SHRM, but almost 70% of employees are more likely to stay with a company for 3 years if they experienced great onboarding.
