Hybrid work Culture – a Global Gamechanger.
An organization’s culture refers to the working environment it offers to the employees. The pandemic has brought employee well-being to the forefront for many companies globally and locally. At id8 media solutions, employee happiness has always been paramount.
WHY IS THERE A NEED TO FOSTER A HEALTHY HYBRID WORK CULTURE?
Considering the muddle that the pandemic got us into, it was quite obvious for organizations to adapt to a new way of working. The work-from-home culture has transformed perspectives. Although most employees enjoyed working from home at their own pace, comfort, and time, things took a turn when the restrictions were lifted. Businesses around the world understood the significance of working remotely as well as working from the office which led to the birth of – Hybrid Work Culture!
SUSTAINING CULTURE IN A HYBRID WORK MODEL!
To enjoy the best of both worlds, adopting a Hybrid future is imminent! This drastic departure from the traditional work model has led to making individuals adaptable and business resilient.
Hybrid work culture is a blend of working from the office and working remotely. It gives the employees the discretion to work from the comfort of their homes that can help bring in new ideas, competitive strategies, and overall growth. It is essential to improve employee productivity and enhance their morale. According to a study by Stanford 16,000 workers over 9 months found that working from home increased productivity by 13%.
WHY A GAME-CHANGER?
Uncertainties of the last two years taught businesses worldwide to always keep up with the trends. Feeling connected to the work is a huge priority for employees because it plays a crucial role in the company’s growth. The rise of hybrid culture also brought about the need to reimagine how we can get work done with this alternate working model. With this work form, business branding services have redesigned themselves in terms of flexibility, agility, iteration, better communication, integration, and collaboration.
For businesses to hustle, it is a suitable working environment. Ideally, the hybrid work model allows employees to create a balance between work and personal life. Through the video meetings, and discussions, there is a significant improvement in employee engagement. Digitalization is the key factor in overcoming the challenges of a comprehensive hybrid work environment because it helps in defining roles and objectives through clear communication. Combating mental health issues and stress is also one key advantage of the hybrid work mode.
Employees are the captain of the ship and without the captain? The ship has a high chance of sinking!

Adapting to a new working environment in a creative agency is not a mammoth task, but it certainly does come with challenges.
