Elon Musk's recent statement in which he referred negatively to the remote working model and issued a demand to his employees to work from the office a minimum of 40 hours per week has caused much controversy. 

"While some companies were already practicing flexible work arrangements before the pandemic broke out, the subsequent lockdown and top-down compulsion to temporarily shift processes to fully remote mode can confidently be called that proverbial pebble that started the hybrid avalanche. Flexibility in the working model and allowing employees to choose where they want to perform their duties from is now the approach most desired by them and often becomes a bargaining chip in the battle for talent," Dorota Osiecka, Partner at Colliers and Director of the Colliers Define platform, noted.

In her opinion, the "fully remote" model, while often seen as attractive by employees, is a radical solution, not advisable or possible for all organizations. Companies that decide on this model of functioning must consider the need for a complete reconstruction of all processes and the entire modus operandi of the organization.  

"In a complex hybrid world, there are no simple solutions that are good for everyone. Implementing such a model of work based on analytics can significantly improve the company's functioning. Conversely, making the wrong decision based on assumptions filtered solely by a leader's personal views and feelings can severely damage an organization," Dorota Osiecka added.
