One thing is sure about the future of work: hybrid work arrangements will be the standard for many companies, from tech to pharmaceuticals to customer service. There are strong reasons why many businesses and workers are pleased about this combination of in-person and remote work, and equally good reasons why many are concerned. However, as more organizations look into remote and hybrid work environments as permanent solutions, there are some common challenges that many are running into during implementation.
We’ll break down common challenges faced by workforces in remote or hybrid work environments and the best solution to help combat these challenges.
Two Large Challenges Remote and Hybrid Work Environments are Facing
Lack of Collaboration
Coordination is one of the most challenging aspects of remote employment. The danger is that the fault lines can quickly form between people who work together in person and those who operate remotely. They are left out of tiny exchanges and decisions made by people who are working together in the office due to the effort necessary to collaborate with distant colleagues.
People can be shut out of more extensive conversations and more critical choices over time as they become accustomed to who is looped in and who isn’t.
Lack of Morale
Maintaining morale and involvement is another common issue in remote or hybrid work environments. The previous two years have been marked by continual, unpredictably changing circumstances, leaving both remote and on-site workers subject to emotions of detachment or isolation. Furthermore, the hybrid work style makes it difficult to overcome such team morale breakdowns since there are fewer possibilities for one-on-one contacts and team-building activities.
Fostering a stronger sense of connection is a method that must be used to address this issue. This requires business leadership to examine their company principles and adapt them to the post-pandemic workplace. For example, rethink how you handle meetings, give your managers more control, promote lunch breaks, and thank the staff for their efforts.
