Asia-Pacific leaders thriving in hybrid set-ups: new research

A new study by leadership development company Center for Creative Leadership found that over 52% of business leaders in the region claim to be thriving in the hybrid workplace.

WORK 3.0: Reimagining Leadership in a Hybrid World surveyed over 2,000 leaders across 13 countries in Asia-Pacific, offering a comprehensive look into the region’s evolving work and workplaces.

The adoption of hybrid work in Asia-Pacific has nearly doubled, increasing from 41% to 80% post-pandemic.

According to the report, a “hybrid, office-first” model is the most preferred mode of working of those surveyed. Forty-three percent of leaders said that most employees in their organisations will be expected to work on-site for the majority of the work week.

But despite the thriving hybrid ecosystem, the survey found that 56% of respondents do not have a vision of what a hybrid model in their organisation may look like in the long term.

“Across Asia-Pacific, we’re seeing an extremely mixed picture when it comes to the impact of the hybrid work environment on productivity, engagement, and well-being. There is no going back and there is no one size fits all. Fortunately, many leaders in the region appear to be stepping up to define a new vision for hybrid work and equip themselves with the right skills for Work 3.0,” Elisa Mallis, Managing Director and Vice President of Asia-Pacific for the Center for Creative Leadership said.

“What is clear is that the success of hybrid (workplaces) depends on people and culture, rather than technology; on building and in some cases rebuilding cohesive relationships within and across teams. We can consider it a re-building of the heart ware.”
