The Remote and Hybrid Work Model
A lot of people don’t understand the power behind hiring people remotely. Vinnie dives into his professional background and how he came into the remote and hybrid work model. Though there are some challenges in distant learning and activity, he believes that these models of hybrid will flourish into the future.
Vinnie and Jaime mention how people’s minds have been opened up into this idea of a new work hybrid and how it can become the future of the workplace.
“Our company lives in the hybrid model. We do have a corporate office building and we have key people in our organization that come to the office. Even during all this time and the essential elements of what we do, there’s a whole chunk of us that do that. But the vast majority of our company works hybrid. This means they work outside of our building. We call them something a little different than distant. We call them homies. The term we use here, it’s a cultural term, one of our homies named themselves and it stuck. I believe that hybrid is going to ultimately look and be a more efficient model because you need a balance. You need a little of each.” – Vinnie Fisher
Benefits or Burdens of The Hybrid Model
Vinnie comments how digital video has been a vital part of communication when it comes to our virtual relationship and businesses. He advises people to leave their videos on in order to help maintain attention and relationships in the workplace. Additionally, Vinnie encourages leaders to not only improve strategy and mission but also reach out to employees. This can be one of the benefits and burdens when it comes to running the hybrid model.
“You have a great responsibility to be a steward of the hybrid model. For me, you can lead through the use of beneficial or encouraging words that are motivating. My job is to encourage. That doesn’t mean I can’t look to things that need to be critiqued, but I can use beneficial and uplifting words to do that. Quite honestly, I think there’s a great responsibility of leaders to not just check out but also help your people. This is a time for leadership because, without it, people do perish.” – Vinnie Fisher
Free Market Society
Vinnie discusses how the free market society is improving categories of businesses. As businesses and operations are changing, there is nothing more powerful than testing the stability and strength of your organization through a remote system. He discusses how the modern businesses can be run by seizing chunks of the company in a fractionalized outsource model and thus become massively more efficient than ever.
“Businesses that are actually solving problems are offering value to the customer. They can still get taken out by the bad inefficiencies of the way their companies are operated. But now with this ability to be able to virtualize, fractionalize, and outsource components of your business, you have a better chance of surviving the process, people, and things that can happen in your company.” – Vinnie Fisher
