Hybrid Workers Struggle With Silos

Hybrid workers need to avoid getting trapped in organizational silos.

Pre-COVID, our traditional ways of working meant many companies used push allocation models to source roles, relying on personal connections and transactional agreements between workers, bosses and small groups. Though this role sourcing might’ve sufficed in days gone by when silo hierarchies ruled the roost, the remote worker era has changed all that. With its hybrid structure, today’s remote working environment requires a far more informed talent assessment process to ensure that above-average staff are identified, and committed individuals fill integral positions. Otherwise, employee churn, disengagement and organizational issues could start to arise.

Hybrid workers need to avoid getting trapped in organizational silos.

There is a growing disconnect between companies and remote workers over how to allocate internal talent resources most effectively. Before COVID-19, many companies and institutions were stuck with assessment processes and hierarchical management strategies that are proving to be outdated in remote worker environments. Gen-Y and Gen-Z employees seek ‘Shape-Shifting’ organizations where silos are absent. To make sure remote teams get the best out of each other, it is integral that employee assessments go beyond the average level and recognize them as committed remote workers who can bring value as an integral part of their team’s performance.
