Learn more about their findings

“For this paper, we carried out primary research to develop new valuable insights on this specific topic. We carried out a survey and an interview at Ski&Boot, an Italian middle-size company. The survey was carried out among employees and department managers and allowed us to dive into their perception of what works and what doesn’t for a hybrid work policy.

We found that most valuable elements for employees to enhance their time management are flexibility, planning and coordination. People inside the organization believe that hybrid work is indeed improving the way they manage their time to complete their tasks, with a positive impact on work-life balance.

Following the survey, we interviewed the chairman at Ski&Boot for a global idea on how to manage hybrid work in the best possible way. The key element pointed out by the chairman is that each company has different needs, and the model should be designed coherently. Ski&Boot is a manufacturing company which requires a lot of work being done at the office. However, it can still benefit from integrating hybrid work into the business.

Hybrid work can particularly improve time management for meetings or tasks that require low interaction and result in more work being done in less time, as Charmain explains.”
