As many companies struggle to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic, a new study has found that 73 per cent of Indian firms are considering whether a hybrid work model can be preferred in the future. 

In the past two years, many organisations have coped with the capacity to work from home.

As per the survey by CBRE South Asia, around 73 per cent of the firms are looking forward to the hybrid model of working post-Covid, as the newly emerging work pattern is more flexible and convenient. The hybrid working model is an amalgamation of arrangements—remote work for specific circumstances, more than three or more working days, a mix of office and remote work, or working from home for three or more.

Captivating their attention, the survey stated that 38 per cent of them would prefer a mix of office-based and remote work while 35 per cent stated they will be allowed three or more days of work in office in a week. Further, it revealed that technology and BFSI companies that are planning on implementing this model would mostly prefer an equal mix of both. 62 per cent of the respondents wish to increase the size of the real estates portfolios in the upcoming next three years and the office demand is likely going to set down.

Moreover, the companies have been facing issues with finding and retaining new talents since the pandemic hit the country. And 78 per cent of the firms are of the opinion that it is the biggest obstacle in the current year.

The Willis Towers Watson (WTW) 'Reimagining Work and Rewards Survey states that in the past two years, the number of firms which have faced difficulties in hiring and retaining talent has increased. 

According to the WTW (Willis Towers Watson) 'Reimagining Work and Rewards Survey', 78 per cent are now experiencing difficulties attracting talent and 64 per cent are experiencing retention challenges.
