Social Media Insights
As many companies are transitioning back to in-person work, most companies have adapted a new method of work, which includes hybrid work. In conducting a poll on LinkedIn, HEPCO has found that most followers prefer hybrid work, as it provides them with the flexibility to still maintain strong work relationships. Additionally, hybrid work gives individuals the ability to work-from-home and create focus hours for accomplishing important tasks.
HEPCO thanks all our clients, candidates and stakeholders for their continuous support throughout the year and in the future.
