Mix of In-Person and Virtual Work May Be “New Normal”

by | Mar 31, 2021

The post-vaccine workplace is taking shape and for many it’s going to be a hybrid model, allowing more remote work but with clear expectations that some days a week will be in the office, reports The Washington Post.

The Post piece adds that workforce experts “are bracing for a whole new set of post-pandemic upheavals, in some instances more transformative than the unplanned move to working from home last March, with some making efforts to avoid pre-pandemic remote-work mistakes.

“New videoconferencing technology will be added to help in-person and remote workers feel as if they’re on a level playing field. Managers will undergo extensive training to fight against the instinct to give workers in the office preferential treatment. Logistics will be coordinated to ensure those who go into the office don’t get there and find the building empty, perhaps by setting core hours or days for on-site work.

“A growing number of major employers of white-collar workers have announced return-to-work plans in recent weeks, outlining a mix of in-person and virtual work that is being described as permanent, or a “new normal.””
