Will 2022 Be the Year of Hybrid?

Over the past couple of years, the onslaught of Covid-19 has brought about many significant changes in society and the way we live our lives. As well as affecting things like education, travel, and shopping, it has also had a profound impact on the way we work, with many people switching to working from home.

Thanks to the advances made in technology over the past few years, the transition has been quite seamless for many. Society has come to realise how simple, and even beneficial, working from home can be. That’s led to the rise of ‘hybrid’ working, a model which combines remote and office working, which could take the stage in 2022…

The pros of a kitchen to home-office commute

As well as the obvious advantage – keeping people socially distanced and stopping the spread of the virus – working from home has several other significant positives that extend beyond the pandemic. These include helping businesses keep their budgets down and benefitting the environment due to lowered CO2 emissions caused by fewer vehicles on the road (or even planes in the sky).

These advantages have prompted many businesses to say that they wish to switch to hybrid working from now on. In fact, in a recent survey of 583 business leaders, conducted by the Institute of Directors, more than 60% said they would like to incorporate between 1 and 4 days of working from home. As a result, it seems like 2022 is set to be the year when hybrid working is overwhelmingly embraced, becoming the norm for many UK workers.

Preparing your business to go hybrid

If your business is planning to take the plunge and go hybrid in 2022, there are several things you can do in order to prepare for an efficient transition.

Pick the perfect IT solution

When your business combines working in the office with working from home, the most important cog in your hybrid machine is your IT system. You need to be able to safely and efficiently create, store, download, upload, and share files and documents via an 'online office' that you and your staff can access both at the office and at home. You will also need a platform to communicate effectively wherever you are.

Security that’s second to none

Having a secure IT setup is essential for any business adopting the hybrid working model - or, indeed, any business at all. By choosing a well-protected security model that conducts regular checks and prevents unauthorised access to files via a variety of processes, you should be feel confident that only you and your employees can view and retrieve data related to your business.
