The adoption of hybrid as the "new normal" among employees constitutes a milestone in the history of work, raising substantial problems and challenges for businesses. However, hybrid is not an exclusive or universal path forward, and there are other aspects of this new way of working that deserve careful consideration, including reward, risk, and uncertainty. We collaborated with executives from organisations affiliated with ASPIRE, a network of international corporations in the technology and business services sector based in Krakow (Poland), to identify crucial topics and acquire related expertise from industry professionals to answer some unavoidable questions:
• Does hybrid influence the employee value proposition of companies?
• To what extent has the role and importance of leaders changed?
• What are the expectations of employees towards employers in hybrid?
• How should organisations efficiently manage hybrid work?
