It’s no secret that hybrid work and return-to-office (RTO) initiatives are rapidly becoming the new norm across the corporate landscape. While many companies are committed to a hybrid working environment and maintaining flexibility, they also understand the importance of in-office interaction. Recent reports show that 75% of Fortune 100 companies have adopted a hybrid work schedule, and 90% of companies with office space plan to return to the office by 2024. These companies are realizing many benefits like real-time collaboration and communication, enhanced team bonding and culture, and improved overall productivity and engagement, with 72% of companies reporting that RTO has improved revenue. 

However, RTO also comes with operational and staffing challenges that a business that was primarily remote may not have encountered over the past few years. To ensure the continuity of operations, the safety and organization of the office, and the well-being of in-office employees, hiring managers are challenged with hiring for roles they may have previously not needed. This is where a staffing partner comes in to help find the right talent who can quickly implement various processes and procedures to keep your RTO on track. 

The success of this strategy can be seen in many metropolitan areas experiencing a tight labor market amidst RTO. Michaela Burns, Division Director at Atrium, observes, “In Boston, many companies have faced challenges in achieving a successful RTO due to the lack of infrastructure that would support a thriving office environment and make it a welcoming and productive workspace for their employees. RTO may entail adding more positions to the headcount that weren’t necessary during a mostly remote work period. Employing a temporary workforce is an excellent way to evaluate your long-term requirements.” 

Consider the various in-office needs of a business. Staffing partners like Atrium can help companies by providing temporary workers to manage tasks in areas including: 


  • Security Guard 
  • Front Desk 

Office Coordination 

  • Reception 
  • Office Manager 
  • Facilities Administration 

Human Resources 

  • Employee Experience 
  • HR Coordinator  
  • Recruiting Coordinator  

Administrative Support 

  • Administrative Assistant 
  • Executive Assistant 


  • Accounts Payable Administrator  
  • Travel & Expense Coordinator  


  • Systems Admin  
  • Helpdesk Support  
  • Network Engineer  

Businesses should also consider temporary coverage for absences people may not have taken during remote times. By onboarding both temporary and permanent hires for the positions above, companies ensure their employees are safe, comfortable, and productive.  

As companies prepare to return to the office, they face a major transition that affects everyone involved. Atrium can provide crucial support in finding temporary and permanent talent for roles ranging from managing safety protocols to assisting with technology setup and providing any other resources that companies need to succeed in this new work environment. By partnering with us, companies can ensure they have the support they need for short-term or long-term staffing needs, enabling them to navigate this transition as smoothly as possible.
