In today’s world, hybrid work models are being implemented more and more within government agencies.
Since early 2020, our day-to-day routines have shifted exponentially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The abrupt closure of many offices and workplaces led to many companies adopting a remote work model, allowing employees to work from home while quarantining.
While many offices have since transitioned their employees back into the office, a growing number of agencies are seeing the benefits that a work-from-home model can offer. In fact, many Americans say that their job can mostly be done remotely – which can save municipalities time and money when it comes to commuting costs and office rentals. Additionally, many employees still feel hesitant to come back to work in the office, as COVID still presents a threat.
However, remote work isn’t for everyone. Many parents argue that they aren’t able to focus when working from home, and younger teleworkers have a hard time feeling motivated without an office space.
With some employees opting to work from home and others beginning to return to an office, many agencies are beginning the shift to hybrid work. For some, this could mean going into the office a few days a week. For others, this could simply mean the option to work remotely full-time, if that is the employee’s preference. If nothing else, a hybrid model offers a way for employees to stay connected while out sick or quarantined due to the risk of COVID exposure.
With this hybrid work model becoming more and more prominent among government agencies, it is more important than ever that your agency is using software that supports hybrid work. At MyGov, we specialize in helping agencies become more agile and adapt to new challenges and demands. Our suite of connected modules makes working remotely completely possible while maintaining productivity and keeps those at home connected with employees in the office and in the field.
Read on to ensure your current software supports a hybrid work model, and understand more about how MyGov can help you transition to a flexible work environment – keeping everyone safe, comfortable, and productive.
