Hybrid Workplace Model is the Future: Here’s How it Works With Wellness

Workplaces have been forever shifted by the COVID-19 pandemic. But the escalated digital transformation of business also created something new: a hybrid workplace model. Let’s take a look into its viability and what it means for wellness practitioners. 

What is a hybrid workplace model

An approach where a specialist can be flexible with their workspaces, bending them to their schedule or specific tasks is known as “a hybrid workplace model”. Simply put, it’s when someone can split their hours between remote and office work. 

Now, when we call this model a recent creation, we refer to its rapidly growing popularity that keeps encompassing more and more fields. The hybrid approach used to be something primarily associated with freelance or self-employed specialists:  illustrators, designers, SMMs, or even web developers. Yet, after the last two game-changing years passed, we’re looking at this*: 


  • 79% of business executives are planning to adopt a hybrid work environment into their company (even after the pandemic is over). 76% say they are likely to pay their employers stipends so they could work remotely;
  • 75% of non-executive employees say they would give up at least one job benefit if it means they can choose where to work from. 
  • The majority of non-executive employees who are most satisfied and enthusiastic about their job would prefer to work from other places than their company’s HQ. 
  • However, 64% of employees would pay for a decent office space of their choice. 
  • 66% of executives are planning to permanently make their workplaces more hybrid-friendly for employees.

Is a hybrid workplace model good for wellness and healthcare?

Work conditions within a healthcare field are a touchy subject — and rightfully so. Fortunately, the latest changes have proved that it is absolutely possible to integrate them to merge them with a hybrid model. IRC Global Executive Search Partners discussed this during their roundtable back in March 2021, and these are the two main outtakes: 

    1. Hybrid healthcare practice will become a common thing — even after the majority of pandemic restrictions are lifted.   


  1. In the past two years, wellness and healthcare professionals have been encouraged to adopt state-of-the-art technologies and remote practices, mixingthem with traditional face-to-face consultations.

As for telehealth, an astonishing 11,000% increase in virtual medicine was noted as early as May 2020 (according to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services). But the demand for in-person sessions isn’t going anywhere. A survey, conducted by Deloitte back in February 2021, showed that: 

  • Patients value a personalized approach from their wellness practitioner and expect them to possess certain characteristics. 
  • For practitioners, switching entirely to a remote (telehealth) model means higher risks of disparities and burnouts

Bottom line: a well-balanced hybrid of the remote and in-person model is the new normal for post-pandemic wellness practitioners.  

How to switch to a hybrid healthcare practice

Those running a private practice can afford more freedom in optimizing their schedule. However, without a hybrid model in place, they remain inaccessible to plenty of potential clients. For example: 

Therapists who only hold online and/or home-based sessions. This isn’t an option for patients who lack privacy or safety in their place of living or have technical problems.  

Yoga, pilates, or fitness instructors, and coaches who offer remote or home-based sessions only. Same here, the lack of personal, physical contact just doesn’t work for many people seeking their services. 

Acupuncture and massage therapy. Telehealth is not much of use here, and home-based sessions are often not convenient for patients (or jeopardize safety protocols). 

Getting a wellness space for rent on demand

 The first step towards a hybrid model is offering in-office practice along with remote and home-based sessions. Renting a good wellness space is crucial, especially since you have to look for a convenient location with safe and comfortable accommodations. And what works for one group of clients may not work for another. 

This is where on-demand office bookings come in handy. A practitioner doesn’t have to commit to long-term rentals when it’s possible to: 

  • Choose a top-tier space and book it for just an hour on any date; 
  • Pick a location that works best for them or certain clients; 
  • Book several spaces in advance and integrate them into their schedule.
