Although it was challenging at first, both employers and employees have now adapted to this system. Data from National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) reveal that only 5.7% of the country’s 873,564 million businesses intend to do that Remote work permanently. So what are the back-to-office hybrid work options?
According to the “Survey on the Impact of Covid-19 in Companies” (ECOVID-IE), fewer companies are on Home office total. In August 2020, 7.6% of employers viewed this modality as a permanent work model, now there is a decrease of 1.9 points.
“When the pandemic hit 100% of all companies, they were able to migrate to the home office. As more people are vaccinated and the economy picks up, they will return to certain personal activities without giving up teleworking. This will continue to a lesser extent, but more than before the health emergency.said Siegfred Seedorf, professor in the Faculty of Economics at LaSalle University, quoted by El Economista.

Between Working modalities that could be deployed include:
- Face-to-face work with partial home office. The relationship between the two depends on each company or division manager, as needed. It could be a personal day and the rest of everyone or vice versa, with all intermediate variables.
- Flexible schedules. Employees could choose their working hours based on parameters set by the employer: working hours, target achievement, etc.
- Compressed weeks. Similar to flexitime, this variant consists of work the same hours per week, but on fewer days.
- Job sharing. It’s about breaking a full-time job into two part-time jobs that can be covered by two people. Several studies prior to the pandemic concluded that a significant proportion of workers would rather earn less money in order to have more free time.
- Hour banks. This scheme is the least appealing to someone who is already used to working from home. Here the worker collects the overtime he has worked to use as free time.
And for you, if you have the choice between home office, one of the hybrid working models or termination, which would you prefer?
