IBM Is The Latest To Announce A Hybrid Work Model

IBM anticipates that 80% of its staff will transition to a hybrid work arrangement post-pandemic.

According to the company’s CEO Arvind Krishna, the majority of employees “will spend at least three days a week, maybe not all eight to 10 hours, but at least some fraction of those three days, in the office.”

This news comes as vaccines continue to be distributed across the U.S. and areas start to loosen their pandemic-related restrictions. Many companies are now trying to find which workplace strategies will be the most sustainable after a year of employees working from home.

According to a report from Zoom, 65% of companies stated they are considering a flexible remote working model.

Krishna added that he could see around 10% to 20% of employees remaining totally remote, but worries about the impact this could have on the company’s culture. However, he added that parents will be allowed to continue working remotely until schools reopen.

In order to accommodate these new changes, Krishna stated that around 70 million square feet of the company’s office space will be closed, but it will keep over half of its current capacity.
