  • Hybrid work will determine companies’ relevance post-pandemic

Hybrid work arrangements will become a key metric in measuring companies’ competitiveness and relevance. A survey by digital management firm Riverbed Aternity revealed that decision makers across multiple industries believe that implementing hybrid work will help them recruit top talents. 

The world is stepping into the future that has been reshaped by a pandemic. And although most employees all over the world have worked remotely while the pandemic is running its course, many companies are now asking staff to report back to the office. 

A matter that has been in question since the economies began opening up. But it is clear that hybrid work is inevitable. According to Riverbed | Aternity’s polls, 96% or financial services business development managers (BDMs) believe that  hybrid work environments help with the ability to recruit top talent and it will help them remain competitive in the future. Nearly half or 42% say that 50% of their staff will continue remote work post-pandemic.

The survey reveals that hybrid work environments are now a prerequisite for new talent. However, in the Financial Services sector, surprisingly, 59% say that they are not completely prepared from a technology standpoint, to support long-term hybrid working. To address this, ITDMs (90%) and BDMs (88%) plan to invest in technology to support a hybrid workplace over the next 12-18 months.

Talent shortage

“The Financial Services sector has felt the impact of COVID-19, and the dramatic shift to remote and hybrid working,” explains John Atkinson, Director, Sales Engineering UKI at Riverbed | Aternity. “As the world returns to some new normality, banks and financial services are on the hunt for talent and battling against a shortage that is impacting businesses worldwide.

“Hybrid work is becoming a prerequisite for banks to attract new talent and retain a competitive advantage. To provide the seamless experience employees now demand, BDMs and ITDMs need to work together to ensure they have the right technology in place to meet these expectations. This means investing in end-to-end visibility and network performance and acceleration solutions that will future-proof their networks and deliver an exceptional end-user and digital experience. In doing so, they will create an environment that will inspire innovation, drive productivity, capitalize on growth and attract the next generation of talent.”
