As many companies return to the office, finding the right balance for hybrid work is key. Managing Partner Matt Katz was featured in “Fashion Finally Heads Back to the Office” in Business of Fashion. He shares his thoughts about the importance of developing a strategic return-to-office plan to ensure satisfied employees and a thriving workplace culture.

Matt explains the importance of having a well-structured hybrid plan, “While workplace flexibility is among the most critical demands of today’s workforce, companies that don’t put at least some structure around their hybrid policies risk forfeiting benefits like collaboration and culture building.”

He elaborates, “You’re going to have to be somewhat prescriptive in who you want in the office and when in order to create that energy in [a given] timeline.”

He also makes note of what things to measure to determine the success of a return-to-office plan. “Companies will need to engage an array of tools to measure whether their return-to-office plans are succeeding — this includes looking at employee satisfaction surveys; hiring and retention data as well as business revenues and profits.”
