According to the Cisco Hybrid Work Report, hybrid working methods have improved numerous aspects of employee performance in UAE firms.
Nearly 90% of respondents to the study, which included 1,050 workers from all across the UAE, said they would like to work in a hybrid or entirely remote model in the future. These results are entirely consistent with the attitude of the world, as just over 91% of respondents from other countries agreed with the same statement.
The conclusions come from the Cisco Hybrid Work Report, a thorough investigation of how digitalization and hybrid job affect performance with an emphasis on productivity, work quality, learning new skills, and growth. It is a component of a comprehensive study that examined the impact of the hybrid workplace on employee preparedness and welfare in relation to a range of corporate and personal issues, including business culture, technology, cybersecurity, as well as financial, physical, and mental health.
“The traditional model that required employees to follow a strict timetable set out by employers has now changed. In today’s UAE workplace, employees are defining hybrid work and that has resulted in benefits for both employer and employees. As the findings of the Cisco Hybrid Work Report clearly show, employees are far more comfortable as a hybrid workforce and companies should take note and adapt accordingly – both from a technology and cultural readiness perspective. After all, they will be the ones to benefit through higher staff performance.”Reem Asaad, vice-president, Cisco Middle East and Africa
The study’s interview subjects said that remote and hybrid working arrangements improved both the calibre and productivity of their output. Overall, 67% of individuals surveyed claimed that the hybrid workplace model has enhanced the calibre of their work. The majority of respondents—nearly two thirds—said their production levels had increased.
As a result of hybrid working’s increased flexibility, people are also improving at their employment. 68% of respondents said they thought their job knowledge and abilities had increased. Meanwhile, an incredible 86% of respondents claimed their employment had allowed them to learn, develop, and thrive.
With the option to work from home, the office, or somewhere else, the hybrid work idea focuses the work experience on the needs of the individual workers. Businesses may encourage inclusivity, engagement, and a sense of well-being among employees by empowering workers by providing them with the proper technology to collaborate and stay securely connected.
