Recent research commissioned by GoTo reports in the past year shows that workplaces who offer hybrid workplace models (a mix of in-office and remote work) have less staff turnover than office based and fully remote workplaces.
The study also demonstrated mandating a set number of days in the office had little to no difference compared workplace who allowed employees to choose, where it reported on average 2.7 days a week was mandated for some employees, compared to workplace without a mandate where employees choose to work in the office an average of 2.5 days a week.
Of the employees surveyed 78% said a hybrid working model increased their productivity.
Some of the benefits highlighted by responders included less communising time and decreased risk of burnout.
