At the beginning of 2020, many procurement and supply chain functions were thrust into a remote working trajectory, a watershed year for digital transformation within the workplace. For the past year, the high-speed mass adoption of flexible working required employers to redefine and re-examine the workplace. If flexible agility, supply chain sustainability, and centralizing data are signs of permanent change, what does this mean for supply chain and procurement teams?
Our latest Career Insight ‘Performance over Presence’ explores the increasingly popular hybrid-remote approach; a business model which intertwines remote work with working in the office. If the evolving experience-based hybrid approach is to be established, institutions may be likely to explore the potential benefits and caveats to this structure.
With this new-found employee sentiment, does the hybrid-remote model support workers and simultaneously avoid an eroding of company culture? How can leaders manage performance with teams spread out across the U.S.? Can hybrid working arrangements prevent a misalignment between employers and employees?
At DSJ Global, these are the questions that have defined our post-pandemic conversations. Perhaps, the hybrid approach allows employees to be part of an integrated strategy and offers a window into a more purpose-driven and brighter future for the workplace, regardless of the market conditions.
