10/27/22 by HQ
In a short amount of time, a flexible or hybrid work model has become one of the biggest things candidates are looking for when searching for job opportunities, with the companies listening to employees and embracing change being rewarded with increased productivity and a more diverse workforce; alternatively, companies being stubborn and inflexible in their plans are at the forefront of having to deal with The Great Resignation of 2021 or the Great Reshuffling of 2022.
From our 2022 Tech Salary Guide, tech leaders and market insiders gave some ideas on how to be successful in a hybrid or remote workplace.
For employers, the biggest tip is to be flexible. Whether it's remote work or scheduling, tech professionals are seeking to be treated as trusted employees.
For tech workers, proactive engagement is key. Setting up check in points and making sure that your expectations are aligned with your manager will go a long way in empowering you to work remotely without losing touch or productivity.
As the world of work continues to evolve, the hybrid workplace - or an entirely remote role - has become the ask of most technical professionals when job searching, as a third of developers would prefer to work 100% remotely. However, there is also the lean towards being able to work face-to-face in some capacity a couple times a week.
