When the pandemic first began in 2020, nobody could have predicted the extent to which it would change the way we work forever. According to job search website Ladders, “remote opportunities leapt from under 4% of all high paying jobs before the pandemic to about 9% at the end of 2020, and to more than 15% [at the end of 2021].”
And this number is already on the rise for 2022. Data scientists from Ladders expect one fourth of all high paying jobs will be available remotely by the end of 2022.
A study released by Express Employment Professionals and the Harris Poll in August of 2021 found that 63% of U.S. companies planned to allow existing employees to work remotely once the pandemic subsided, and 60% agreed a rise in this trend is making it more competitive to attract and retain employees.

The workplace is changing. No longer do you see the majority of businesses confining employees to an 8-to-5, brick-and-mortar office space. Now, more companies are opting for remote, work-from-home options and flexible schedules. If the global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus taught business leaders anything it’s this—maintaining productivity is more about the what, not the where. During the past year, many employers were forced to move their workforces to a remote solution to regulate social distancing protocols and health-related restrictions. During this time, businesses received first-hand knowledge on the efficacy of remote work. And with 52% of companies saying their workforce is more productive while working remotely, according to a PwC study, it looks like the remote work option in some form is likely here to stay.
With the shift in the way we do business, many new challenges come, including maintaining structure with the new normal. The most recent change leaders have seen is the proliferation of the hybrid workforce. This is the consolidation of workers in one organization who work in different capacities, including an in-office staff, remote workforce, semi-work-from-home solutions, flexible hours, etc. In the past, leaders focused on one specific type of workplace situation. In today’s modern office, businesses are managing multiple employee conditions. To ensure a productive workforce that maintains morale, engagement, and overall structure, consider these solutions.
