Hybrid workspaces offer many benefits, from increased business resilience and scalability to a better work-life balance for employees. As with any way of working, though, hybrid work environments do come with some challenges, particularly as businesses make the shift from a traditional central office model. However, with the right strategy and management tactics in place, organisations can overcome these and build a stronger hybrid workplace. In this blog, we’ll talk about four of the most common challenges in hybrid workspaces and how to solve them in a manner that expands your business capabilities.

In a traditional office environment, the IT team may have direct contact with the infrastructure – computers, printers and other devices – that they manage. In a hybrid work environment, many of the devices are in remote locations. Each remote worker is likely to have a laptop and printer for their home office, while any centralised workspaces will still need to be equipped with shared hardware, such as printers.
