Asia accepts Hybrid working model to attract Talents



The number of Asian businesses that expect employees to spend all of their working time in the office is plummeting.  At the same time, many businesses in the region are looking at the model of remote working combined with the office (hybrid) as the second factor to attract talents, only after welfare issues.

The number of Asian businesses that expect employees to spend all of their working time in the office is plummeting.  At the same time, many businesses in the region are looking at the model of remote working combined with the office (hybrid) as the second factor to attract talents, only after welfare issues.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, more than 50% of businesses in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region wanted their employees to work full-time in the office.  But that number has now dropped to 13%, according to a report surveying 2,170 business leaders in 13 countries in the region, by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), a non-profit leadership development organization, based in the United States.

Asia accepts Hybrid working model to attract Talents

The survey was conducted through a partnership with 15 organizations including the American Chamber of Commerce in Singapore and the Japan Association of Human Resources Directors over a 10-week period from June to August.

The report notes that the proportion of businesses in APAC adopting a hybrid working model has increased from 41% before the Covid-19 pandemic to 80% in the post-pandemic period.

However, more than half (56%) of business leaders in APAC admit that they do not have a long-term vision of how the hybrid working model will evolve in their organizations.

Enterprises' views on remote working vary widely across countries in the region.  The survey found that Singapore, Australia and New Zealand are the places where businesses are most likely to adopt the hybrid working model.

Singapore stands first as one of the leaders in embracing the flexible working model.  According to the survey, business leaders in this country expect their employees to be at the office full-time (1%) and the most open to allowing their employees complete flexibility to do their jobs anytime and anywhere (31%).

Businesses in China, Japan and India are least receptive to the flexible working model.

According to the survey, only 7% of business managers in APAC expect their employees to work completely remotely, up slightly from less than 5% level before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Around the world, businesses are facing backlash from employees as they seek to withdraw the work-from-home rule launched during the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. Particularly, young workers in the West tend to be the strongest advocates of flexible working models.

In CCL's survey of business leaders, only 34% of their employees want to spend more than three-quarters of their time in the office, down from 79% level before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Attracting talent was recognized by 42% of business leaders in the survey as the second most important reason to adopt a hybrid working model, after ensuring employee benefits.  That is also reflected in the recruitment information in the APAC region.  The number of remote job vacancies on the job social network Linkedin has increased from near zero in January 2020 to over 20% in India and 10% in Australia, as of September 2022.

While more and more countries and businesses around the world are embracing the 4-day workweek, only 2% of business managers in APAC see this model as their preferred choice over the next five years, according to the survey of CCL.
