The majority of organizations in banking and financial services are looking for ways to offer their employees more flexibility and embrace hybrid work. Are you ready to support this shift?
Employees who experienced remote work during the pandemic aren’t willing to go back to the daily grind. In fact, a survey by Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA) revealed that only 3% of white-collar workers want to return to the office full-time. 86% said they want to work from home at least two days per week.
While the banking and financial services industry has historically been known as conservative when it comes to flexibility at work, times have changed. Hybrid work options are now imperative to attract and retain talent. Employees want to have a choice - so much that working in a hybrid setting has overtaken salary as the most-wanted workplace benefit.
That’s where hybrid workplace technology comes in.
In order to provide a seamless experience to both current and potential employees, HR, Facility, and IT decision makers must work together to adopt the right tools. As a rule, the best hybrid work solutions are not only reliable and easy to use – they also bring autonomy and visibility to everyone in the organization.
As the hybrid work model expands beyond its initial pioneers (mostly in the IT industry) and reaches industries that were once considered to be very traditional from this perspective (such as Healthcare and Education, for example), it only makes sense for Financial Services businesses to align with the trend as well.
Why is that? And what are some of the other very important things you should know about hybrid work in the Financial Services industry?
