ChicExecs Co-Founder and Co-President, Nikki Carlson, shares her tips on how hybrid work environments empower employees on Newsweek. Here’s a highlight from the feature.

1. Increased Productivity
Happy employees are productive employees. Instead of trying to improve your team’s output with pizza parties or sales competitions, you can offer flexible hybrid arrangements to do more in less time.
2. Employee Satisfaction
Look, it’s hard retaining good employees these days. Since other companies in your industry offer hybrid work, you need to offer it, too — otherwise, your employees might set their sights on greener pastures.
3. Culture And Connection
Managers are hesitant to go all-in on remote work because they want to see their employees in person. Fortunately, opting for a hybrid setup allows you to get a little face time with your team.
4. Reduced Costs
