How to build a productive and successful hybrid environment

No featured Image


Many employers are struggling to trust their remote and hybrid workforce to keep up with the pace of work. So much so that countless businesses are dragging their people back to the office.  But there’s strong evidence that the flexibility of hybrid working can improve productivity, increase engagement, and generally make people happier. It just needs to be done in the right way. 



Research from around the world reveals that greater flexibility from remote and hybrid working often results in a major boost to productivity. Yet still some firms are bringing back an office-only policy.  Employers may be grappling with the fallout of the last few years and hoping that a return to the office will result in a post-pandemic productivity boost.  

But seeing as hybrid workers show improved morale, greater creativity and better collaboration (compared with pre-pandemic levels), this could be a big step in the wrong direction.  


Big Brother will never be popular. Some businesses have increased their employee monitoring to try and track performance. But this is often perceived as a Big Brother tactic that ends up having the opposite effect – a drop in productivity, a lack of trust, demoralized teams, and a greater feeling of ‘us and them’.  

 All businesses need to understand how they are performing and decide which metrics give the best insight into productivity. But this has to be done in a way that doesn’t leave employees feeling like cogs in a machine. 


So, what’s the answer?  Here is some useful advice from the pacific IT Support team:

  • Encourage people to work in the way that’s best for them 
  • Find the right ways to measure performance – without people feeling like they’re constantly being watched.
  • Automate repetitive tasks to free up your team’s creativity 
  • provide everyone with the tools and tech they need to do their job properly. That could include choosing the right devices, using communication tools that aid collaboration, and making the right connectivity choices.
