Great Expectations: Making Hybrid Work Work

Great Expectations: Making Hybrid Work Work

We’re not the same people that went home to work in early 2020. The collective experience of the past two years has left a lasting imprint, fundamentally changing how we define the role of work in our lives and how to make the Hybrid Work work. The data shows the Great Reshuffle is far from over. Employees everywhere are rethinking their “worth it” equation and are voting with their feet. And as more people experience the upsides of flexible work, the more heavily it factors into the equation. For Gen Z and Millennials, there’s no going back. And with other generations not far behind, companies must meet employees where they are.

As leaders puzzle over how to make hybrid work work, big questions loom: What is the role of the office? How do teams build social capital in a digital-first world? The challenge ahead for every organization is to meet employees’ great new expectations head-on while balancing business outcomes in an unpredictable economy.

Five urgent trends business leaders need to know in 2022:

  1. Employees have a new “worth it” equation: changing perceptions of work, priorities have shifted, the workforce is still in transition;
  2. Managers feel wedged between leadership and employee expectations: back to the office, hybrid or remote work?!;
  3. Leaders need to make the office worth the commute. Hybrid work requires new team norms;
  4. Flexible work doesn’t have to mean “always on”. Work is more flexible, but digital overload is still a risk, Meeting habits are changing;
  5. Rebuilding social capital looks different in a hybrid world: The impact of strong workplace relationships.


“In a hybrid world, it’s up to leaders to help all employees prioritize time to build relationships, with additional support to remote and newly onboarded employees, who our research shows are most at risk of being left behind.”
