This whitepaper, created in collaboration with the New Statesman Media Group, looks at worker attitudes, requirements, and priorities in relation to future working models, following a period of unprecedented global change. As the “new normal” adopts firmer shape, what lasting changes have already taken hold? And how can enterprises define and execute a successful hybrid working strategy? As listening to one’s workforce is the first step, this report might be a good place to start.

- Employees are keen to see hybrid working models fully implemented. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited improved work-life balance as major benefit of the hybrid model.
- A majority cited a lack of social contact as main drawback of hybrid working, a requirement the future workplace will now need to address like never before.
- As digital technologies will play a key role to understand employees’ preferences it is encouraging to see that a majority said they would be happy to use a workplace app.
Still, with a number of respondents being not sure or unwilling to use a workplace app, employees need to be engaged and educated from the very start of implementation.
- Looking on specific functions of a workplace app, a majority of respondents value the possibility to find and book a suitable workplace as well as the potential for a healthier work environment.
