A mix of remote and office working—hybrid working—is the new model for many businesses that were traditionally in-office organizations.

See why understanding employees’ situations and personality types better is key to a successful back-to-the-office strategy.

Companies have responded to remote working mostly by focusing on tech adoption and how to ‘get the work done.’ But this doesn’t address employees’ individual needs.
