Authority-driven remote working is gradually evolving into hybrid work based on the decisions of companies. More and more companies are planning to combine the best aspects of remote work and office work. What does international research data say about remote working – and how have Technopolis' customers experienced working in the office?
In December 2020, a research group in LUT University (Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT) described that after a prolonged period of remote work, employees needed more interaction with each other, and during this research period the feeling of isolation grew. The work of the research group will continue by examining the quality of cooperation processes, trust and interaction.
The Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago studied the work of Asian IT companies in 2020 Working hours increased but work efficiency did not, and the conclusion was that communication and teamwork required more resources than office work.
A large part of Technopolis' customers has also carried out hybrid work. Our recent customer feedback shows what things are valued when employees arrive at the office. Our comprehensive and adaptable services, solution-oriented approach, customer-oriented reception, well-kept facilities, and delicious food are praised. We have succeeded in supporting the success of our client companies.
Adequate physical presence in well-functioning facilities certainly meets the need for employees to experience good interaction, communication, and teamwork in their employer company. Returning to the office can even be improved and made more efficient with our comprehensive services:
