An IoD survey of around 600 business leaders has shown that over 60% of organisations plan to adopt hybrid working even after restrictions ease.
63% of business leaders intend to shift towards one to four days of remote working per week. One in five are not planning to introduce any form of remote working, while just around one in ten are now looking to work from home entirely.
The Institute also found that business leaders were split on whether working from home was more or less productive. Around four in ten said remote working was more productive, while a slightly smaller 37% felt it was less productive for their work.
The mixed response suggests that the hybrid working model is likely to provide the optimum balance for business leaders as the economy reopens, although many employers are yet to determine how this will work in practice.
