The working world is changing. During the pandemic, working from home was essential but now we are seeing more companies adapting to making a hybrid and flexible way of working a permanent feature. Ian Williams is one of those companies that supports #hybridworking and the recruitment team discuss how it’s been for them, how much they have enjoyed being able to balance work, home and home schooling, have the flexibility to work from any of our office locations and how to keep motivated as a team:
“Hybrid working has allowed me to look after my children and work around the changing demands for their schooling while still being able to do my job fully – without feeling that I am unable to balance work and home.” “Once adapting to the change of environment became more routine, I believe people found it comforting that everyone was in the same boat and that we were all in this new way of working together, experiencing the same changes and challenges.” “I enjoy being able to base myself at any of our offices or choose to work from home. The flexibility works well with my lifestyle.” “Joining as a new team member whilst working from home was a completely new concept to me! I found the training and interaction to be as efficient and interactive as it would have been in an office. I now enjoy being able to choose between multiple offices to base myself in, as well as working from home.” “I have adapted well in hybrid working with the team’s support, motivating and supporting one another on a day to day basis.” “I have two young children and am career focused. Having a career is important to me and a part of who I am, I love what I do, and I love watching people be successful. Therefore, having the opportunity to work flexibly works for me, my family and the business, and that’s what is important.” “I enjoy the hybrid position. Knowing how productive I can be at home, hybrid working provides that extra level of flexibility and I can choose to go into my local office when I wish to have more interaction.”
