Over the past few weeks, I have shared numerous resources on flexible work, remote work, hybrid work, and return-to-office (RTO) mandates. A few of these resources include:

  1. A study by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh that examined 137 S&P 500 firms publicly announcing RTO mandates, revealing no significant financial or market value changes post-mandates but which resulted in decreased employee satisfaction.
  2. A study by researchers at the University of Virginia and the University of Southern California found that “on average, a 10% increase in work-from-home is associated with a 0.78 percentage point (or 0.94%) increase in mothers’ employment relative to that of other women. 
  3. A University of Cambridge study on the 4-day work week showing that a 20% reduction in working time with no loss of pay led to significant drops in workforce stress and sick days, an increase in worker retention, and a much better work-life balance for most employees—all while ‘key business metrics’ were met. 
  4. My cheat sheet of 11 organizations who’ve recently announced more stringent updates to their RTO guidance.

As leaders continue to assess various aspects of work flexibility and hybrid work, this AIHR article outlines 17 types of hybrid work arrangements, offering insights into their suitability for different situations. While 17 options can be overwhelming, they might also spark new ideas for organizations considering various hybrid work arrangements.
