5 Hybrid Work Schedules: Which One Would You Choose?

At OOO-Marketing, we are big fans of OOO work schedules not just because we founded our company around the idea but because it has proven to expand the talent pool, increase productivity, and improve trust amongst the team. So, with summer ending and more companies setting a permanent hybrid schedule, check-out our quick list of the types of schedules that exist and the biggest benefits to each.

Manager Assigned Model: Assigned days of the week for a specific team to come in. For example, the sales team leader assigns the day they want their team in-office and at home.

  • Benefit: Creates consistency across the team

At-will or Flexible Model: This is when the employee picks which day(s) they come into the office. This can be a set schedule they have chosen or decided on week-to-week based on tasks at hand. For example, in-office for in-person team think tanks and collaborations. WFH on days they need to work on projects that require focus.

  • Benefit: Builds trust and flexibility

Fixed Work Model: The organization sets the hybrid schedule. For example, an entire organization is required in-office on certain days.

  • Benefit: Gives employees a consistent schedule and cadence to plan around

Office-First Model: The office is open 5-days a week, but the employee has the flexibility to pick some days to WFH.

  • Benefit: Individualized flexibility

Remote-First Model: Work remotely with the option to schedule time in the office – or for some companies who have given up on office space, schedule team meet-ups for collaboration.

  • Benefit: Best for employees seeking flexibility
