A thriving hybrid workplace is the future of work. To get there, your company needs a hybrid workplace strategy and it requires more than simply deciding where people work each day.

Organizations today are focused on ensuring their hybrid and remote work models are healthy, productive and engaging for the long run. Modern workers want an employer that combines virtual and in-person work – but only when working on-site makes sense. The right hybrid workplace strategy involves thoughtful planning and execution to maintain a strong company culture. But some of the most critical decisions are not always obvious and are not always easy to implement.

At Centric Consulting, we are digital pioneers. Operating our company largely without direct office space for more than 20 years has taught us that great hybrid workplaces don’t happen by accident. In fact, the President of our company wrote a book that shares what we’ve learned.

Future of work strategies must address key decisions about workplace vision, talent lifecycle, leading virtually, workplace collaboration and technology, real estate, security, and digital process modernization to keep companies prosperous. Then the strategy must be put into action while guiding leaders and associates to realize the vision.

Helping clients build strong hybrid workplace cultures and adopt the right technologies is part of our company’s DNA. We’ve used this experience to create best-practices to help build better hybrid and virtual workplaces.
