We’re at a moment of historic change in the world of work. Over the past three years, organizations have implemented a variety of hybrid working models that support a combination of remote and on-site employees. During 2022, according to McKinsey, 58% of Americans had the opportunity to work from home at least one day a week, while 38% were not required to be in the office at all.
Isolation, disengagement, and misinformation. These are all very real and present risks to the modern organization. As hybrid and remote working models continue to evolve and become the norm, tried and tested communications strategies will falter. New, flexible working models require new, better ways of communicating.

IC and HR teams, must find a way to keep employees connected and informed, or risk severe productivity losses.
