In today’s post-pandemic business climate, companies have shifted towards hybrid work as a viable alternative to both the fully remote work option (no longer a requirement of covid, many limitations in collaborative work, stifles creativity and potential opportunities) and fully in person work (limits employee autonomy, in many cases inefficient). Research points to the fact that, by and large, companies have ranked hybrid work as the best model, as it encourages in person collaboration, promotes employee freedom, and generates the highest level of productivity. Though it does come with many perks, the hybrid work model has one major flaw, which is that it results in empty offices. The realities of hybrid work is both a waste in company resources, primarily in paid office spaces. Moreover, companies who have implemented the hybrid work model spend large sums of money on offices that are ultimately left empty during multiple days of the week and month (Fernandes, 2022).
