London, 27 April 2021 - DuoMe, the flexible working platform, has today launched DuoMe for Hybrid Teams, a SaaS solution to make hybrid working - a mix of office and remote hours - effective.
DuoMe is used by hybrid teams to collaborate efficiently while working across different locations and at different times. The solution helps teams plan work effectively by bringing the right people together, at the right time, in the right place.
“The work we do in the office is finally changing,” says Eric Evans, Co-Founder and CEO of DuoMe. “As employees return to the office for fewer days than before, office and remote hours may not happen at the same time. But less physical presence doesn’t have to mean reduced visibility. Leaders need methods to communicate with their teams, as do teams to keep up with their managers, whether or not they are seated alongside each other, working in or out of sync.
“We know employees want choice about how they work. Around 70%* want to return to the office, but not 5 days a week. So, they need to be able to collaborate efficiently while working in different locations and at different times to their colleagues. Offices are not going to disappear, but the future work style for most companies means rethinking the purpose of the office.
“Making intelligent use of more limited time in the office is not about picking a day. It’s really about facilitating the right people coming together for collegiality and networking at the right times. The office space will no longer be used as a place to observe people working.”
DuoMe for Hybrid Teams is a ‘location-aware’ flexible working solution to make hybrid working effective by facilitating three key activities:
Scheduling effective office time
Planning work by location
Working in or out of sync
