On the other hand, the homeworking of many employees over longer periods of time makes it possible to efficiently reduce the size of offices, which lowers costs for companies. So from now on, there will be both an office at the employer’s and a home office: a hybrid working world is emerging. How do companies view the home office in early 2021? After a year of corona crisis, the Munich-based Ifo Institute surveyed nearly 800 HR managers on their opinion of the home office and hybrid working. 73% of them believe that a megatrend has begun in which they want to participate.

The long-refused notebook is now standard equipment. On the other hand, the “office grapevine” has pretty much fallen silent, and coffee together is only available online at best.At some point, the pandemic will be over and everything will be as it was before. Will it? Probably not quite. Ideally, the best of both worlds will become the new work style, a combination of the before and after. What might this hybrid working world ideally look like?

That means not having to slog through rush-hour traffic and being able to sit at a desk in sweatpants for a change. Or maybe it means being in a…

Hybrid working means working partly in the employer’s office and partly in the home office. This trend has been around for some time now, since most data is stored in a cloud and the office worker only needs one computer for access. He or she does not need to carry files or electronic data carriers with him or her to change workplaces. The corona pandemic is now likely to reinforce this work organization. Various studies are looking at the prospects. Hybrid working world in the Robert Half Report The labor market report of the personnel service provider Robert Half was published for the first time for the year 2021. Primarily, it shows recruiting trends and the expectations of companies and employees. However, it also looks at hybrid working. Its popularity has increased during the pandemic, both among employees and employers, 86% of whom now see hybrid working as a permanent…

Generation Z is entering the labor market and companies are trying to prepare for it. There are currently many studies about this new generation, which more or less even contradict each other. It is obvious that the survey of 16-18 year olds who have barely or not at all worked hardly any statements about the labor market. It can therefore be assumed that the study results can only be correctly confirmed in 5 years and that they will still change massively. Generation Z summarizes the years 2000 – 2015.

One in three employees in Germany worked in a home office in February 2021, according to a recent study by the ifo Institute in Munich. “Corona will permanently change the use and acceptance of home office. In the meantime, the majority of German companies are considering offering more home office options in the future,” says Dietmar Harhoff, director at the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation. A global study by Barco, a provider of visualization and collaboration solutions, found that a hybrid work environment is preferred by respondents. The ideal balance, according to the study, is three days in the office and a maximum of two days per week in the home office.
