Hybrid Work and Sustainability



Hybrid work can be the harmonious combination between professional life and family life/ extra professional, with benefits for people and companies and with beneficial effects in the economy, social, environment. Because time and energy are more manageable and also, because it has been proven, since this pandemic, that #hybridwork helps a #sustainablebusiness, especially in terms of reduction of pollution, uncontrolled consumption of water and electricity. 

The shift to the Green Economy, with a rapid growth in some countries such as the UK, where, according to the data, the low carbon sector grew by 7.4% 2019/2020 and 9% in 2020/2021 is supported to a considerable extent and of the #hybridwork strategies adopted by some companies. They support a sustainable business towards net zero targets, such as those set by the EU Green Deal, for example, with a commitment to reduce emissions till 2050 by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels.  

Developing and adapting tech solutions for hybrid work / remote work, I addressed this topic in the part 1 of the article, along with achieving companies #sustainablegoals, which are already adopted or will be adopted in the near future, inevitably lead to rethinking strategies at cities level, at #smartcity, taking into account hybrid work. This will be an important topic at Smart Cities Connect Conference and Expo next month, 

“how to better create hybrid environments, enhance digital skill-building, and prepare your community for change”   

“The world of work is changing in every way. COVID-19 caused major shifts in where and how we work, and the need for a digital workforce outpaced other areas for job growth. The rise of robotics and AI-automated tools will further escalate the need for new thinking as cities optimize their workforces and work environments.”
