Covering more than 5,000 corporate or government organizations in Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, and the United States, this survey reveals the need for more information on workers‘ adjustments to work after the pandemic. According to the survey, although organizations have announced their intention to adopt a hybrid operating model in the future, the lack of details worries employees. Employees think that they do not know enough about this issue.
On the other hand, it is seen that the welfare and productivity of the employees increase in institutions that put forward more specific policies and approaches in this regard. Moreover, although these policies have not yet been clarified, communicating with employees more frequently and sharing information increases their productivity. Employees who think they can communicate more are five times more likely to report increased productivity.
Employees want hybrid model
McKinsey survey results show that employees also expressed their opinions about the hybrid working model and its limits. More than half of employees say they are adopting a more flexible hybrid working model. More than a quarter report that they will consider changing jobs if their organization returns to working entirely from the office. In addition, more than half of the respondents express their opinion that they want to work from home for at least three days when the pandemic is over.
Restoring the disrupted work-life balance is critical
Finally, another noteworthy result is that work-life balance is one of the most important hopes and fears of employees for the future. Whether remotely or from the office, employees always want to see an organizational structure that considers work-life balance.
We can say that when attention is paid to such issues, it will provide a serious increase in the motivation of the employees.
