How can you make a success of hybrid working?

A policy with clear arrangements is crucial

According to Prof. Verbruggen, to successfully manage and support telework as a company, it is best to develop a policy or framework agreement that suits the company culture. “This can specify, for example, how many days employees may work from home and how many days they must be present at the company. Do they then choose fixed days of telework or may they freely choose the days that suit their personal life best? And must they only come to the office when it’s really necessary?”

Even when the corona pandemic is over, 4 in 10 Belgians will be allowed by their employer to work some of the time from home. And that’s a good thing for companies. Research carried out by Professor Marijke Verbruggen (KU Leuven) shows that employees with more autonomy are more productive.

Professor Marijke Verbruggen from the Work and Organization Studies research unit of KU Leuven: “Telework is sharply on the rise in organizations. We see that from the results of a survey we conducted in collaboration with Acerta and HR Square among Belgian businesses in September. While telework was still mainly a favour before the first corona lockdown, 41.5% of employees are now allowed to telework. That figure has risen by more than 50%."

"The advantages that employees now enjoy also have positive consequences for their companies. Because of the autonomy they have, employees work more efficiently, perform better, and become more productive. And because of that experience, companies now have greater confidence in telework.”
