A hybrid work model typically comprises of some employees working on-site while others work from a remote location. That might be a home office, a desk in the bedroom or simply a laptop on the sofa.
The hybrid remote work model can also include public locations such as coffee shops, where employees can access Wi-Fi hotspots. However, for privacy and confidentiality reasons, this is often banned when recruiting into a hybrid office.
It's also worth noting that employees don't necessarily work entirely in the office, or entirely from a remote location. Since the COVID-19 lockdowns ended, some employers have offered a half-and-half approach, with staff coming into the office 2-3 days a week.
The result is a hybrid workplace with fewer people in an office at any one time and hence a reduced demand for physical premises. For commercial property landlords that can mean some tenants may be looking to renegotiate their leases upon expiry and reduce the size of their office footprint.
