The Future of Work: At Home, In the Office, or Both: What does the future of work look like?

Posted by Tyler Eatman

During the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and organizations were mandated to have their employees work remotely and at their homes. As the world is getting back to “normal” and more individuals are getting vaccinated, businesses and organizations need to decide what the future of work will look like and what the format will be used?

Businesses would follow three possible models that would predict the future of work for clients and employees to run effectively and efficiently.

Tradition Model (Going Back to the office): This is the typical model that businesses and organizations are familiar with. Employees will be working in the office spaces and interacting with coworkers and others. Employees will receive quick feedback and have questions answered promptly from supervisors and bosses due to be in the same office space. Employees will resume businesses per usual by following the same companies’ procedures and guidelines from pre- COVID-19 pandemic.

Remote Model (Continuing Remote Work from Home): Since having to quarantine and being stuck at home, many businesses continued to run by having employees work remotely and from home. Employees who had the opportunity to continue their profession and work remotely have been doing this for more than a year now, which has allowed them to find a wholesome routine and complete work responsibilities. Employees have adapted to this new way of work and have allowed them to balance family life and career.

Hybrid Model (A little bit of both): This model combines the tradition and remote models. Businesses and organizations will allow some employees to work remotely, and others work in person at the office location. Remote work will include but not be limited to having virtual staff meetings and conferences call. In the traditional office setting, employees will complete their work within the office space and complete group work with fellow employees. Businesses and organizations will have to develop a way to keep both groups of remote and in-person office employees unified and not isolated from one another.

To help businesses and organizations decide on this critical return-to-work issue, check out speakers Marissa Orr and Seth Mattison. Marissa Orr, founding member of Google’s sales operation and strategy teams, delivers an excellent keynote speaking on the future of work and how businesses can change corporate culture to enhance creativity and innovation. In addition, Seth Mattison, a high-performance leader, enlightens the room with keynote addresses that would help with remote-work issues for leaders in the workplace and how teamwork, collaboration, and talent can be incorporated into your company. Both speakers can educate, inform, and answer the looming questions that businesses and organizations face.

The most important aspects that businesses and organizations must be mindful of are ensuring they follow the state’s health and safety guidelines. Ensure that the company is up to date on this information when discussing going back to work, having meetings with clients, in-person gatherings, etc. Use the CDC’s Guidelines to ensure your company is maintaining the safety of the clients and employees.
