Does "one-size-fit-all" for hybrid?

In most cases, no.  ​

Our findings show that over 90% of associates prefer a hybrid plan that aligns to the unique needs of their department or team versus a broadly implemented a "one-size-fits-all" approach across the organization.

Balanced Hybrid™ makes it easy to tailor a hybrid work plan to the unique needs of your various departments, aligning with associate sentiment while still addressing the underlying objectives of your RTO policy.

Balanced Hybrid™ helps leaders avoid or repair associate disengagement while addressing the underlying reasons driving an RTO mandate decision. 

Balanced Hybrid - Optimized Hybrid Benefits

The benefits of optimizing hybrid

Optimizing your hybrid work strategy can generate cost savings and give you a competitive advantage. Not doing so can cost your organization, division, or department, money, talent, momentum, and growth.

Reduce attrition of

new hires & top performers

Balanced Hybrid™ reduces attrition by designing a hybrid work environment where your new hires can onboard, engage and learn, and where your top talent is not driven away by office-return mandates they view excessive.

Balanced Hybrid™ results in a highly predictable use of office space.  This enables you to make better office space decisions, sooner; saving money and providing a foundation to hyper-optimize your use of space.

Balanced Hybrid™ can typically identify real estate cost savings of 20% or more without negatively impacting culture, collaboration or onboarding.  

Increase productivity, agility, morale, and momentum

A hybrid approach with either too little or too much structure can negatively impact productivity, morale, and momentum.  Balanced Hybrid finds a middle ground approach tailored to the unique aspects of your organization.

RTO mandates can increase the disengagement level in over 53% of associates, including 10% of associates who are more likely to quit.
