Hybrid Workplaces to be the Norm Post-COVID World: Study

With COVID-19 significantly changing the world of work, one third of the workforce is keen on their organizations investing in innovative videoconferencing technology to roll out hybrid workstyles, according to a recent survey.


Barco, a global leader in visualization and collaboration solutions, surveyed 1,750 employees around the world (250 each from the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, India and United Arab Emirates) through global research panel provider Dynata.


The survey results emphasized the need for a hybrid workplace, with 77 per cent of Indian white-collar employees claiming remote work less enjoyable. While 49 per cent missing office social life and feeling left out while working from home.


The findings further revealed that only 15 per cent of employees, globally, want to continue to work from home full-time post COVID-19 era.


Rajiv Bhalla, Managing Director, Barco Electronic Systems Pvt. Ltd. said, “Our new research depicts that the future of the workplace is not remote, but hybrid. While Indians value family time greatly, with 65% of the respondents stating this as a major benefit of working from home, they are now ready to head back to office. The prevalent office culture has several positives, which are only set to be enhanced with the hybrid workplace trend. Organizations must invest in technologies that enable hybrid work to cater to employee requirements and enable bright outcomes in the workplace.”


 The Barco ClickShare study stated that India is one of the countries with the lowest desire to work from home in the future, wanting only 1.8 days a week at home, on average. Employees are keen on a hybrid workplace model, where most of their time is spent in the office but they have the flexibility and freedom to work from home when it works best for them. Further, employees are looking for organizations to invest in a technology-driven hybrid working environment post-COVID-19.
