Are You Prepared For Hybrid Working?

The great remote working experiment forced many organisations to quickly acquire a range of technologies and tools to keep their employees connected and businesses running.


Post-pandemic, many businesses will retain remote working practices combined with a return to the office. However, the 'hybrid working' approach will create a set of new challenges. For example, will the tools that kept business communications flowing over the last 18 months be flexible enough to support the hybrid working model? 


Let's look at some of these challenges in more detail below.

The Challenges Of Hybrid Working

Creating A Safe Environment

The saftey of employees is of paramount importance, whether returning to the office or working from home.


Top issues to consider:

  • Protecting employees in meeting rooms with capacity limits 
  • Limiting physical contact between shared devices and spaces
  • Robust Cybersecurity protections for remote workers

Making Use Of Existing Technology

Many businesses have invested in new technology to keep remote employees connected and productive. But will these technologies support the new hybrid working working model?


Top issues to consider:

  • Communication tools interoperability across different platforms
  • Gaining ROI from existing office technology, e.g. telephone systems
  • Existing meeting room technology interoperability across different platforms

IT Systems & Infrastructure Management

IT teams adapted quickly to support the needs of staff working remotely but must now adapt once more to new challenges posed by hybrid working.


Top issues to consider:

  • Management of meeting rooms and interoperability with different communication platforms
  • Mobile device management
  • Flexible call routing that supports office and remote working
  • Extended business communications networks, network security, home wi-fi, 'shadow IT' and IoT devices

Meeting Room Spaces

Video-first is the new standard. It has replaced voice calling for many businesses. Spaces for video meetings and video calls will now be used more than ever. 


Top issues to consider:

  • Re-designing existing spaces to meet new demands
  • Removing the complexity of joining meetings
  • Room and desk space management and book systems
  • Meeting room technology that is interoperable across a range of different platforms
