I have long advocated that Working From Home is the basis of a flexible, combined approach to work. According to a recent article in The Times the Government are coming round to a similar view, although they of course have had to give it a new name: Hybrid Working.
The government has set up a task force to draw up advice on flexible employment amid signs that working from home could become a permanent feature after the pandemic.
Twenty business groups and trade unions will meet today to begin a review of hybrid working, where employees spend some of their week at home and some in a workplace.
The task force will be asked to consider how the government and businesses can support the change brought about by the pandemic, as well as whether more could be done to promote “ad hoc” flexible working arrangements.The Times
