Many people in Ireland traded office life for remote work at the onset of the pandemic; and many now favour their WFH arrangements. Now that many organisations are returning to the office in varying degrees, the competing preferences are giving rise to new and evolving hybrid workforces.
The future of work isn’t cut and dry. It’s an evolving landscape of work from home (WFH) teams, in-office professionals, digital nomads, and flexible preferences.
Demands for hybrid work models exist in virtually every industry. Even sectors with a significant onsite, in-person requirement (e.g., construction, brick-and-mortar retail, food and hospitality, etc.) have roles that can be performed remotely on a full or part- time basis. As a result, employers of every stripe face the challenge of adapting to a hybrid model.
