Dubai Companies Adopt Long-Term Hybrid Work Models

The whole world witnessed a huge shift in work models after COVID-19 due to long periods of quarantine and working from home, which proved to be successful with many sectors. The UAE saw many companies adopting to hybrid work models for the long-term as staff begin to return to the office.

A survey by Hays recruitment showed that of almost 1,100 employers and employees in the region found more than two thirds of employers were operating with a hybrid model.

In addition, 69 per cent of these companies said they offered remote work options, compared to just 43 per cent before the pandemic.

“We believe hybrid working models will continue in the long term as more and more organisations incorporate remote working options as part of their standard working patterns,” said Chris Greaves, managing director of the Gulf region for Hays.

“Of the 69 per cent of employers who now offer hybrid working models, none specified that they would remove this option and instead they are looking to realise the benefits it can provide.

“The only exception to this being service-related roles and industries where office working is essential to business.”
