Maria Alvarado, 1010’s facilities manager, spoke with us about their journey from a semi-remote to a remote-only to a hybrid workplace in the space of 18 months, clueing us in on some of the biggest benefits they’ve seen in that time.
The past 18 months might have been the longest of our lives, but if there’s one hidden gem that makes it all worth it, it’s that we have been given the power to re-tool the workplace and create offices that are optimized for productivity, longevity, and, most importantly, happiness.
An increasing number of businesses are going hybrid. Meaning employees can work from home on some days and from the office on others. Adjusting to a hybrid office system takes a little extra leg-work to find the right balance between working from home and working in the office.
As great as hybrid work is (and it is great), many businesses face the same nagging question as they make the switch: What about our culture? Specifically, how do we build team and company culture without daily face-to-face interaction?
As a manager, you’re expected to understand how your team works and find the best methods for garnering team results. Today, there’s another question managers need to consider when learning how best to lead their team: Where is each team member working from?
With remote work and in-office work not going away, the future of work is looking increasingly hybrid.
The Hybrid Workplace: What it is, how it’s changed, and what it means for your employees and your business
With COVID-19 throwing our entire world (literally) for a very-much-unanticipated loop, all indications are showing that working from home is here to stay, at least in some form. Tech behemoths like Twitter, Square, and even Facebook have in recent months announced plans to allow employees to continue to work from home even after the Coronavirus pandemic is behind us.
We’re going on twelve months into a global pandemic, and for some of us, the desire to return to the office is getting stronger every day. It’s time to plan a safe return to the office. Let's talk about how to do it safely.
Those of us who know the joys of working from home also know the struggles that accompany them. Ditching the long commutes and slimming down on unnecessary meetings have been met with increased enthusiasm and focus from employees; but with distractions as prominent and enticing as the couch, tv, and fridge staring at us all day long, some days it’s a wonder we get any work done at all
Building rapport and forming strong relationships is a vital skill for anyone wishing to build a successful career, regardless of industry. With all or most of our interactions occurring via Zoom, Google Meet, and Slack, the tools and strategies associated for creating and sustaining rapport have changed.
Every once in a while, you might have a moment where one of life’s unanswered questions pops into your head uninvited. The most important of all: Calendar? or to-do list?
COVID-19 has changed the way we work, maybe forever. Companies were forced, almost overnight, to transition their entire workforce from offices to working from home. Managers and team leaders navigated the sea of emerging technology to find the most effective tools for collaboration and productivity.
If you had to estimate how much work you actually get done in a day, I’m guessing the number would be significantly less than the 8 hours that are in a standard work day.
