Hybrid and remote working trends for 2023

A recent survey found that one-third (33%) of employers offer a completely virtual interview process, with an additional 21% resorting to in-person interviews only for final rounds. It’s clear that virtual interviews have become a standard part of the hiring process, even as organisations are beckoning their employees back to their corporate offices. Although many UK professionals have grown accustomed to using video-conferencing tools like Zoom in lieu of in-person meetings for work, data shows that not all job candidates have yet to master the art of the virtual interview and would benefit from doing so.

Jobs will become increasingly location-agnostic.
Historically, many top jobs have been focused only in major metropolitan areas. However, as remote work becomes increasingly popular and companies forgo creating a physical headquarters, we’ll see a greater distribution of these professionals across the UK (and elsewhere).

More careers will become location-agnostic, allowing many of us who have sampled remote work during the pandemic to continue working from home on a full-time basis. 

Hybrid working environments will continue to evolve.
Hybrid working arrangements tend to be the compromise many employers have struck with their employees in an effort to bring people back to the office whilst retaining their staff who’ve grown accustomed to a more flexible work environment. However, companies are still struggling to figure out the best balance between remote and in-office work.

In 2023, we’ll see companies testing different guidelines for working remotely and in the office to ensure the arrangement maintains productivity levels whilst keeping employee morale high. For example, there may be more of an emphasis on using in-office time for in-person meetings and refraining video conferences, which could take place at home.

In addition, expect to see more training for management on the dangers of proximity bias and how to avoid it.
