Benefits of Hybrid Working

At Chess, we put our customers at the core of our business. We are here to support your business now and in the future. As your business grows and changes, so do your requirements. That is why our hybrid working solutions are designed with flexibility in mind, to help future proof your business.

Hybrid working lets your people work where they work best. A study by Standford Business found that remote workers took fewer sick days and were 13% more productive.

Happy People

Hybrid working is the working model of the future with 72% of people surveyed saying they would choose hybrid working options over a pay rise.


The pandemic has taught us that businesses need to be able to adapt quickly. Hybrid working is flexible and agile, meaning you can adapt and modify the way your business works as your needs and requirements change. 

Cost Savings

Physical offices can be expensive as businesses need to pay for rent, utilities, property insurance, office supplies, and more. These expenses can all add up quickly. Hiring remote workers and adopting a hybrid model can reduce costs.
