The BBC reported that more than 80% of surveyed managers said their companies had adopted a hybrid model of working, most of which adopting flexible working since the pandemic.

Flexible working is where an individual’s working pattern is varied from their employer’s standard terms and conditions of employment, which for many is the traditional ‘9 to 5’. This can be any form of variation, including in the hours or place of work. Hybrid working is generally where an individual has multiple working practices, often for example a mix of working from the office and from home.

Hybrid working is fast becoming the standard model for many and there has been somewhat of a cultural shift in how working from home is viewed. Each business will have to assess how best to deploy flexible working generally to ensure continuity however many have noted an improvement in morale and productivity where hybrid or other forms of flexible working is adopted.
