When pandemic lockdowns began to lift, many companies chose not to re-integrate employees full time for a variety of reasons. Many companies have now opted for a hybrid work model, be it with a coworking space as the meeting space or letting their employees use a coworking space on their days away from the office.
A hybrid model means the employees have the freedom to work both in office and at home, either on a set schedule or at their own discretion. Many employees and employers prefer the hybrid model for a variety of reasons.
There are many benefits and advantages to a hybrid work model for both the employees and employers. If you are an employer in Dallas, TX trying to decide if you should go hybrid, here are 5 reasons why your Dallas business could benefit from a hybrid work model:
Hybrid work models give a better work-life balance
The hybrid work model is reported by many to improve work-life balance, as the reduced commute of being able to work from home or at a coworking space nearby helps employees put time back into their day. This way, they have ample time for family and friends outside of work hours, and can fully relax when the day is done.
A Hybrid work model can increase productivity
In a hybrid work model, employees have more control over their days and work schedules. When they are able to schedule their own days around the errands like picking up kids, they can be more productive in the time they are working or focusing on their job. Many employees benefit from this freedom and trust from their employers, and are able to get more done as a result.
There is more value when collaborating with a hybrid work model
Collaboration becomes a little more challenging with less in-person meetings, but it also makes the in-person meetings more valuable and productive if they aren’t happening every day. Employees are now able to come into the office or a Zoom call ready to collaborate.
Hybrid work models reduce operating costs
As an employer, whether you are renting your own office or a coworking space, you’ll notice reduced operating costs from a hybrid work model. You will no longer be paying for the utilities of keeping an office building running full time, especially if you choose to opt for a hybrid work model which involves a coworking space on the in-office days.
With Caddo, you can rent an office space for a more affordable price for the days you need your employees to come together. Not to mention, happier employees have a higher likelihood of staying with your company longer. You will not have to swallow as many turnover costs, including costs for hiring new staff.
Hybrid work models open you up to an expanded talent pool
With a hybrid or work from home model, you now have the option to hire employees who may be further from Dallas. Even if those people can’t join you for all the in-person work days, it may be worth it to hire someone remote if they have the right skill set for the position.
