Strategies for the Hybrid Workplace

Companies are creating, refining and implementing their hybrid work strategy. Technology professionals, such as chief information officers (CIOs), facilities managers and IT managers, are critical to ensuring the hybrid workplace strategy is a success. Planning a return to the office is complex. It’s not as simple as turning on the lights, dusting off the desks and bringing employees back to the pre-pandemic office.

Technology professionals must rethink and improve office spaces to promote a new connectivity standard. We’re entering the next phase of connectivity with the introduction of hybrid work. Hybrid work is more than creating flexibility for employees. It’s an opportunity to improve workflows, collaboration and experiences. To experience the full benefits of the hybrid workplace, you need a long-term strategy that will take you far beyond the next six to 12 months. 

What is your long-term strategy for hybrid work? How can you ensure it’s successful? We’re here to help. At AV Planners, we understand how to provide relevant technology solutions for the future of integration. We provide future-proof technology solutions because we are closely connected with our manufacturer partners. We’re outlining a few key considerations for developing a long-term, successful strategy for hybrid work.

  1. Understand the modern office strategy. In a hybrid model, the office serves a new purpose. The modern office is a space for collaboration, engaging and hands-on experiences and camaraderie with colleagues. Technology is essential in assisting employees in finding suitable areas to work and collaborate. Intelligent devices that support hybrid work provide features such as room scheduling, touchless controls and wayfinding, to provide a seamless experience. 
  2. Develop a hybrid work framework. Hybrid work provides greater flexibility, but organizations need specific guidelines to support a hybrid structure. Guidelines specify which employees will work remotely, how often they will work remotely, the technology they will use in remote versus in-person work, and how they will bridge the gap between remote and in-person work. Technology professionals can outline the devices and services that need to be delivered in the hybrid work framework. 
  3. Embrace technology to create an experience. Today’s expectations for the modern office space are much higher now that employees know they can get their work done at home. Technology is a key component to increasing value inside the office. High-quality displays with touch-screen technology promote creativity and collaboration. A cutting-edge video conferencing system incorporating microphones and cameras for streaming and recording should create collaboration equity. 

A successful hybrid model should support employee engagement through collaboration and enhanced user experience.
