There is nothing like the big changes coming your way like a global pandemic that makes you think about what life has to offer and how workspaces are going to play a prominent role in it. Coming back to the office is indeed a daunting and thrilling experience for both employers and employees. But at the same time, it has become crucial for businesses to bring their employees back to offices. As a result, this period of upheaval underscores the significance of reevaluating traditional structures and embracing adaptable solutions. 
At present, companies are deliberately adopting new strategies by embracing a flexible approach to effectively implement their return-to-office plans. With the rise of flexible and managed office space, businesses today have the liberty to make cost-efficient and scalable decisions regarding their office spaces. This flexibility has given a push to hybrid and hub-and-spoke models. Moving further, we will discuss how hybrid and hub-and-spoke models can empower both employers and employees.

From Remote to Hybrid and Hub-and-Spoke Model: Work and Workspace Evolution in India

For the longest period of time, a majority of the Indian workforce was unaware of concepts like remote and hybrid work culture. However, the pandemic drastically altered the traditional work setting. Companies were forced to adapt quickly to ensure the continuity of the business, leading to an accelerated adoption of remote work practices. This shift not only highlighted the viability of working from home but also brought about a change in organizational mindsets towards flexible work arrangements.

Hybrid Workplace: The Future of Work.

In the contemporary work and workspace landscape, the hybrid model has emerged as one of the most transformative and beneficial solutions for employees as well as employers. For employees, it has become easier to strike an ideal balance between professional commitments and personal responsibilities. On the other hand, employers with hybrid work settings can attract and retain the best talents, minimise overhead costs, and manage all their resources effectively.

Hub-and-Spoke Model: Businesses’ Go-To Strategy?

In the past couple of decades, India has experienced a wave of entrepreneurship with a plethora of startups in different verticals. With the ascent in workplace solutions, both employers and employees find themselves with equal footing in decision-making. For employers, the hub-and-spoke model offers an opportunity to optimise real estate costs and allocate resources effectively while expanding in both Tier-1 and Tier-2 cities. Moreover, this model enhances workforce agility, enabling companies to adapt quickly to changing market dynamics and talent preferences.  

For working professionals, especially from Tier-2 cities, the rise of the hub-and-spoke model has been a relief. As more and more companies are expanding their footfalls in Tier-2 cities, employees have the flexibility and autonomy driven by decentralised work models. Instead of commuting daily to a centralised location, employees can work from satellite offices that are often closer to their residences. Apart from this, the hub-and-spoke model fosters a sense of community and collaboration, allowing individuals from different teams to interact with each other.
