[Table 2: https://prtimes.jp/data/corp/15000/table/20_1_aef05acae7090db2241e5ee4e5d0d603.jpg ]
Lenovo defines hybrid work as “a work style that allows each individual to actively choose a work style according to their purpose and circumstances.” increase.
This time, in promoting hybrid work in Japan, we will discuss the current situation from three perspectives: 1. workplace systems and rules related to the working environment, 2. the reconsidered “value of the office”, and 3. the actual situation of “telework”. We conducted the “Hybrid Work Fact-Survey 2022” to clarify the actual situation of work styles.
[Introduction ~ 44.9% awareness of “hybrid work” ~]
When 2,000 company employees were surveyed about their awareness of the term “hybrid work,” 44.9% answered that they knew the term “hybrid work.” The result was that the majority did not even know the word yet. By age group, 52.5% of people in their 20s had recognition, while 34.5% of people in their 60s tended to have lower recognition as they got older.
[Chapter 1: Workplace systems and rules related to the working environment] In this chapter, we will look at the actual situation related to the working environment, which is the basis of the working style of company employees, with a focus on systems.
◆ 30% of all people are teleworked
When we surveyed the system of the company/organization to which we belong, 30% (30.0%) of the respondents answered that “telework has been introduced as an organization and has been applied to them.” It was revealed that about 40% (38.3%) of the respondents answered that it has never been introduced.
◆ The actual situation that about 90% of telework users decide whether to telework by themselves
On the other hand, about half of them have a hurdle that requires reporting to the company and approval.
Approximately 90% (89.3%) of those who answered that “telework is applied” (n = 600) said that the system of the company or organization they belong to allows them to “choose by themselves whether to come to work or telework”. I answered.
However, looking at the breakdown of those who answered “yes”, 32.7% answered “need to report to the company” and 19.0% answered “need to report to the company and obtain approval”. I learned that they choose whether or not to telework, subject to certain conditions such as approval.
[Chapter 2: “The existence value of offices” being reviewed] In this chapter, we will clarify the actual situation of working places, focusing on offices, where the value of existence is being reassessed in line with the spread of telework.
◆ About half of the respondents answered that they would like to freely choose whether to go to work or telework.
About half (49.1%) of the survey respondents answered that they would like to freely choose whether to go to work or telework by themselves. [Image 5
◆ “Reasons for coming to the office” number one is “because physical facilities require coming to work”
“The pleasure of coming to the office” No. 1 is “Communication with colleagues” The most common reason for coming to the office was “because of the physical facilities (33.4%),” followed by “the company has a better environment (26.1%),” and “internal relations.” The next highest result was “to communicate with people (20.7%)” and “to have paper-based work such as approval and stamping (20.4%)”.
When asked about the enjoyment of coming to the office for purposes other than work, the top responses were “Communicating with colleagues (24.0%),” “Exercise and refreshment during commuting (18.9%),” and “Shopping and eating while commuting (17.6%).” It was a result of going up.
The existence value of the office is also clarified from the issues of telework In this survey, about 40% (40.1%) of those who teleworked in the last year (n = 686) answered that they had felt that it was difficult to use telework in the last year. . The most common reason for this was “difficult to communicate with internal stakeholders (25.1%)”, followed by “doing things other than work (19.0%)” and “difficult to communicate with external stakeholders (16.6%)”. ” etc. While communication is an issue for telework, it has also become clear that the ease of communication is the value of an office.
◆ It is clear that places other than home are less likely to be selected as places for telework
As a place to work other than the office, we also investigated places where telework is implemented. When we surveyed people who had teleworked in the last year (n = 686) about the location of telework, “home (shared space such as living room)” was the most common at 65.9%, followed by “home (space dedicated to telework)”. The result was 35.3%.The number of places other than home is less than 10%, and it was found that few people actually chose places other than their homes for telework.
[Chapter 3: Reality of “telework”]
In this chapter, we will clarify the actual situation of “telework”, which has rapidly spread as a new normal work style after the new corona epidemic, and is now established as one of the universal work styles. From here, we conducted a survey of people (n=600) to whom telework was applied.
Approximately 20% of employees do not apply rules for coming to work About 20% (18.3%) of the people who are currently applying the rules for coming to work, it turned out that there are no rules for coming to work.
◆ The application of telework tends to create diversity in ideal work styles When we surveyed the ideal way of working, as shown in the figure below, those who applied telework had a variety of answers, from “complete telework (coming to work 0 days a week)” to “going to work 5 days a week”. On the other hand, about half (53.0%) of those who “have never introduced telework as an organization” (n=766) said that “going to work five days a week” was their ideal work style.
◆ Approximately half of telework users feel that telework has improved their work results
About half (46.7%) of those to whom telework is applied answered that “telework improves work results.”
The most common reason for this was “I can make effective use of my commuting time (61.1%),” “I can work at my own pace (57.5%),” “I can relax (47.1%),” and “I can work in a quiet environment.” “I can do it (45.4%)” was the next highest result.
