Although some companies have implemented a hybrid work setup, others have opted to work back on-site as pandemic restrictions ease. Here's why it works.

Three years after the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, 51% of the workforce in the Philippines has returned to working on-site. And while 50.5% of HR professionals believe that hybrid work is the future, 33.4% reportedly feel “uncertain” about transitioning to on-site work, according to the 2023 State of HR Report by Sprout Solutions.

What these numbers show is that there is “less resistance to working face-to-face in a physical office than the year before.”

“Despite 50.5% of HR professionals foreseeing hybrid work as the future, the neutral responses towards on-site work suggest a lack of immediate urgency to adopt a hybrid model,” says Sprout Solutions. “This hesitation may stem from the perceived advantages and benefits associated with on-site work.” 

Despite the still-present threat of COVID-19 and the enticing advantages of a hybrid or work-from-home setup, here are some of the advantages and benefits that can encourage companies to return to on-site work.
