‘’If you’re asking employees, what it is that they want, it’s really, really important that you need to listen to what they actually say.’’ – Aoife O’Brien.
Welcome back to Happier at Work! In this week’s solo episode, Aoife will focus on the hot topic: the future of remote and hybrid work. In light of the global pandemic, many people continue to work from home or are now hybrid working. In this episode, Aoife shares insights into how businesses are operating today, highlights the importance of companies not following the crowd when creating strategies, and explains why companies should be listening internally to analyse what will work best for them.
‘’I think really bringing people on that journey with you, bringing people into it, getting their feedback, and really listening to what they have to say, is the crucial part of making this remote and hybrid future of work a reality and making it really work well for you!’’ – Aoife O’Brien.
As we all universally continue to navigate and adapt to remote work or splitting our working week from the office and home desk, Aoife explores whether this is a temporary working model or if this indeed is the new way of working. Stay tuned throughout as Aoife will reveal the pros and cons to both hybrid and remote models. Further key points covered include:
