Microsoft introduces its hybrid work model for employees to work both, at home and office

In order to curb the spread of the coronavirus last year, Microsoft having sent their employees home, have now released its published “guide to hybrid work” which features its plans on how they will have certain employees work on-site while others will work remotely. 

The company began to welcome back some of their employees back to the US headquarters earlier in March. 

Several governments and companies have been worried about which approach they should consider while starting to open up their offices and have employees return. 

Microsoft, by releasing some of their pointers from their newly adapted hybrid work model have been helping these companies by providing their guidance on the same matter. 

Amongst many, some of the new features of this hybrid work model are updating conference rooms, evaluating building-usage data and relying on Teams for sales. 

Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella on a LinkedIn post while he described some of the tweaks to their new model, said, “Hybrid work represents the biggest shift to how we work in our generation. And it will require a new operating model, spanning people, places, and processes”.
