Workforce exclusion | Do hybrid models reinforce stigmas against gender?

Do hybrid models reinforce stigmas against gender?

With 2022 edging closer to an end, it would be an understatement to say that this year’s agenda was overwhelmed with schedules and ideas for flexible working conditions across all businesses. However, with so many different plans for what the ‘best’ work model is, businesses have overlooked the line between exclusion and equality.

COVID-19 sparked the trend for many businesses to adopt remote working models, such as hybrid working. As a matter of fact, the hybrid working model is viewed by many as an opportunity for growth and enhancement for their employees and overall business. While this belief is true to an extent that the hybrid working model can bring opportunities and development, this model can also initiate challenges and create further problems, especially in terms of gender equality.
