A hybrid workplace

When COVID-19 hit Denmark in 2020 and all employees were sent home, we, like all other companies, had to find a solution where we took care of our employees. After two years with COVID-19 and a lot of working from home, we can see that the opportunity to work at home greatly increases employee well-being.

A 60/40 plan

After two years with COVID-19 where we have had the opportunity to test the working from home setup, we can see that working from home is something that increases our employee well-being. That is why we - as a pilot project - have introduced a 60/40 working model on a weekly basis. 60% of the working time is in the office, 40% is at home.
 
We know that increased homework can present challenges to both the social and professional cohesion between employees, but we can also see that the opportunity to work at home two days a week reduces stress and sick leave and increases flexibility.
 
We believe that the workplace of the future is hybrid, and our goal is to create a healthy balance between working in the physical and the virtual space. But we also know that it requires focus on both culture and physical framework as well as digital tools and competencies.
 




Well-being is the key

We want to ensure continued good well-being in the hybrid workplace, which is why we have entered a collaboration with Future Work Lab - a research and development project - on the hybrid workplace. The purpose of the collaboration is to ensure a good development of digital work communities and thereby create better well-being and more cohesion between the employees.
 
In future, the hybrid workplace will be continuously evaluated and adjusted to suit the needs of employees. In addition to well-being, there will also be a focus on efficiency and social cohesion in the hybrid form of work.
