Purpose: This research investigates the personal experiences of hybrid workers, exploring their perspectives on their health and wellbeing when undertaking hybrid working arrangements. The research further explores how organisations can proactively support the health and wellbeing of hybrid workers, mitigating any potential risks to health.
Design/methodology/approach: A cross-sectional, qualitative online survey was used to collect data from 412 hybrid workers. Data was analysed thematically. This approach allows for nuanced insights into the personal experiences of hybrid workers to be understood. Originality/value: Although empirical research has previously examined the relationship between remote work and employee wellbeing, there is a lack of in depth understanding about employees’ experiences of wellbeing whilst undertaking hybrid work - an emerging and relatively unexplored working arrangement. This research therefore addresses a significant gap in the literature by providing a deep understanding of how hybrid work influences employee wellbeing. Furthermore, previous research has not yet explored how hybrid worker health can be enabled and supported by organisations and individuals themselves. Findings: Findings indicate that employees who undertake hybrid work experience both positive and negative effects on their subjective wellbeing; hybrid work arrangement have the potential to act as a job resource or job demand. The study further identifies actions that can support healthy hybrid work that will be of value to organisations offering these working arrangements.
