HYBRID & REMOTE WORKING
1 in 5 workers operate from home in the new work based normal with hybrid & remote working
At the height of the coronavirus (COVID-19), pandemic, almost half of working adults in the UK were working from home. Since the restrictions have been lifted, the total number of home workers has decreased to 1 in 5 (22%), and approximately 1 in 8 (13%) having worked from home exclusively in 2022. While home or remote working has decreased, it has not reduced to pre-pandemic levels. The proportion of homeworkers planning to spend most of their working hours at home has risen by 12% between April 2021 and February 2022. With 60% of businesses planning to adopt hybrid working since the pandemic restrictions, companies need to review their voice and data services and adapt to the new hybrid normal.

Remote working pros & cons
The benefits and drawbacks of remote working, as well as the challenges of managing a distributed workforce
Although remote working may not be suitable for all businesses, every company strives to make its organisation more adaptable, capable of responding to daily challenges, and flexible enough to work from anywhere. In retrospect, many small to medium-sized companies were caught off guard by the Covid-19 pandemic, which impacted how their teams worked internally and with their clients. As we emerge from the pandemic, hybrid working is being viewed by many as the new normal. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of working from home.
Remote workers save money – Global workplace analytics estimated that working from home saves employees between £1700 – £5300 per year
Improved work-life balance – Working from home can lead to a healthier work-life balance and more productivity while offering more family time with less commuting and happier employees.
Fewer office distractions – Staff have fewer internal distractions, or distractions from office politics, allowing them to focus solely on their diary and agenda.
Lack of communication – Where remote and hybrid working can and does fail is the lack of effective communication. Streamlining your platforms will give your teams the tools to collaborate more effectively.
Team collaboration – When your teams operate from the office, collaborating and getting work done can appear much easier. Remote teams often feel isolated without the right processes and voice and data collaboration tools.
