New analysis carried out by the true property skilled providers agency JLL Applied sciences discovered “a big hole” within the adoption of applied sciences vital for the sleek operating of the hybrid work mannequin. 

JLL Expertise’s report, Expertise and Innovation within the Hybrid Age, noticed that tech-enabled options are vital to the survival of hybrid work. “With 55% of office-based staff now in a hybrid work sample, corporations should enhance the speed of know-how adoption to satisfy workforce preferences and enterprise objectives,” the agency stated.

In its Way forward for Work Survey, the agency recognized 15 anchor applied sciences wanted for hybrid work. These embody remote-working know-how, in-office collaboration instruments, office expertise apps, CRE information warehouse and co-working and flex-space administration know-how.

There are additionally applied sciences accessible for touchless entry, digital connectivity and infrastructure, sustainability and setting management, predictive facility administration and portfolio information evaluation. 


Whereas JLL discovered that corporations wish to undertake these applied sciences, its report stated {that a} “giant hole” exists between their present and future plan implementations. On the identical time, the report discovered that remote-working know-how is already in use by nearly half (47%) of the surveyed corporations. 

Two different high applied sciences already in use for hybrid work functions embody in-office collaboration know-how (40%) and office expertise apps (36%), JLL stated.

Over the subsequent three years, corporations intend to undertake applied sciences similar to sustainability and setting controls (60%), digital infrastructure and connectivity (58%) and occupancy and setting sensors (56%).

No One-Dimension-Matches-All

The research additionally discovered there isn’t any one-size-fits-all resolution on the subject of hybrid-work know-how. Due to that, corporations may have to undertake instruments and processes personalized for his or her kind of staff, shoppers and enterprise fashions. 

JLL Applied sciences President Sharad Rastogi believes the flexibility to pick out the best applied sciences is vital to hybrid work’s success. “Hybrid work seems to be totally different for each enterprise given the individuality of their worker base and enterprise mannequin, and the place they’re with regard to return to work,” Rastogi stated.

Firms’ perspective towards know-how adoption is altering from reactive to forward-looking implementation, JLL stated. Whereas on common, the surveyed corporations have solely adopted 4 out of 15 anchor applied sciences, “many have important ambitions.” 

“By 2025, 78% plan to include the vast majority of these applied sciences into their portfolios, and in 2022 alone, most corporations purpose to undertake as much as six new know-how options,” the report discovered.

As a result of an ideal number of know-how options is offered, JLL stated creating a strategic strategy to hybrid work is vital. “Forefront and progressive corporations are establishing strategic approaches for hybrid work to pick out the best applied sciences, develop the best capabilities and execute on well-defined implementation roadmaps,” Rastogi stated.
