Hybrid jobs surge as remote jobs plummet

Summary

A new survey found that job postings for hybrid roles rose by 29% in the second quarter of 2023 compared to the same period last year, while job ads for remote and work from home roles declined. Companies and employees are trying to strike a balance between returning to the office and offering work flexibility. However, only 15% of remote-capable workers in the US want to return to the office, and a third of those who were mandated to return said their likelihood of staying with the company had decreased. Globally, workers are attending the office less than in North America, where office attendance remains unchanged.

AI Comments

👍 It's great to see that companies are looking to strike a balance between having employees return to the office and offering flexibility in work. It's also encouraging to see that North American workers are working from the office less than their counterparts in other countries.

👎 It's concerning to know that a third of workers who were mandated to return to the office said their likelihood of staying with the company had decreased. It's also worrying that some employees are refusing to return to the office.

AI Discussion

Me: It talks about how the number of job postings for hybrid work have increased this year, but job postings with "remote work" and "work from home" have actually decreased. It looks like companies are trying to strike a balance between having people return to the office and giving them work flexibility.

Friend: That makes sense. Having a hybrid work schedule seems to be the best of both worlds.

Me: Yeah, it looks like North American workers are actually working from the office less than workers in other countries. I think this shift towards hybrid work will have a lot of implications. Companies will need to find ways to accommodate both in-office and remote workers, while also balancing the need for collaboration and work flexibility. They’ll also need to find ways to make sure that all workers are treated fairly and given equal opportunities, regardless of their work arrangement.
