The last couple of years has seen a huge shift in workplace norms and expectations. The power of decision has shifted to the hands of the employee, as there are now more choices in the market that offer more flexibility to self-manage their work-life balance.
For many employers and managers, this shift of expectations brings light to the question ‘should my team be working from home or in the office?’ — the answer is both!
Improve your team’s efficiency
Did you know you could be losing up to 30% of your hours in inefficiency? In 2021, Swinburne University surveyed over 1,000 white-collar workers in Australia. The results showed that hybrid working was the way forward for workplace optimisation. In order for your team to operate efficiently, it’s important for you to understand that there are some tasks that are easier to do from home, and others that are easier to do in the office.
Encouraging your team to come into the office is great for nurturing a collaborative environment. As the old saying goes, ‘two heads are better than one’. The best ideas often come from when your team is in the office and engaging in informal chats, actively collaborating with their colleagues, brainstorming ideas, and learning from each other.
There are of course days when your team needs valuable time on their own as individuals so they can focus on tasks that require deep concentration and the implementation of feedback, as well as one on one calls. Working from home also gives staff members a break from the commute, and gives them a chance to switch on when the day starts, and switch off as soon as their work day ends.
