The Hybrid Work Debate is Over

Last year, hybrid work became the battle ground between employers who wanted their employees back in the office and employees who wanted to keep workplace flexibility. As such, the number of organizations offering hybrid work increased. According to The Flex Index, 62% of U.S. companies now allow some degree of remote work, up from 51% at the start of 2023.

Heading into 2024, hybrid work is the norm for most companies. Just 6 out of 158 U.S. CEOs said they will prioritize bringing workers back to the office full-time in 2024, according to The Conference Board. What’s more, hybrid work research shows that there is a positive return on investment (ROI) for organizations implementing hybrid work: 

  • 96 of the Fortune 100 provide hybrid work options. 
  • 63% of high-revenue growth companies are more likely to embrace hybrid work, while 69% of companies with negative or no growth do not offer hybrid options (Accenture). 
  • From 2020 to 2022, companies with full flexibility led their peers by 16% in revenue growth (Flex Index).

Organizations that prioritize hybrid work will drive higher economic return and be better prepared for the future of work. However, there’s still a lot of information out there on how to navigate the complexities of hybrid work successfully. This report aims to reduce the noise and bring you exactly what you need to create an effective hybrid work strategy.
