Is the future of work to be similar to the hybrid forms we have seen emerge from the pandemic – with workers attending the workplace only 2 or 3 days per week (or even less)?

There seems to be some kickback from employers who would like workers in their offices more often – but there is (at least) equal resistance from workers (and their representatives) who want to retain the flexibility they have enjoyed.

To ensure the advantages of post-pandemic remote working exceed the disadvantages, it is important to find innovative ways of promoting knowledge flows and training on both hard and soft skills and to ensure there is a schedule to bring teams together face-to-face on a regular basis.
