See what 2 AIs have to say about hybrid working

Ok here is a fascinating one for the New Year. The script and video below are completely generated by 2 AIs. All I did was type in the instruction “Write me a video script explaining the advantages and disadvantages of hybrid working” at Chat GPT a new language based AI that creates incredibly good answers to natural language questions in seconds. I then cut and pasted the text without any changes into our avatar based video system from Synthesia.

I want to stress that I did not edit or change anything. It is clearly not perfect yet but it gives you an idea of what is here already and will now improve rapidly.

As AI takes on more routine tasks, what is left at work is likely to be more deeply human; such as collaboration, innovation and relationship based work – time to be thinking about what that looks like in your job and career!


Hello and welcome to this video on the topic of hybrid working.

Hybrid working is a flexible work arrangement that combines both remote and in-office work. It has become increasingly popular in recent years due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift towards digital technologies.

But what are the advantages and disadvantages of hybrid working? Let’s take a look.

First, let’s start with the advantages. One of the biggest advantages of hybrid working is the increased flexibility it offers employees. With the ability to work from home or the office, employees can choose the environment that best suits their needs and preferences. This can lead to increased productivity and job satisfaction.

Hybrid working can also benefit employers by allowing them to tap into a larger pool of talent. With the option to work remotely, companies can hire the best candidates regardless of location.

Another advantage of hybrid working is the potential cost savings for both employees and employers. Employees can save on commuting costs and potentially reduce the need for childcare. Employers can save on office space and utilities.

Now, let’s consider the disadvantages of hybrid working. One potential disadvantage is the difficulty of maintaining work-life balance. With the ability to work from anywhere, it can be harder to disconnect from work and maintain boundaries.

Hybrid working can also create communication challenges, as employees may not be in the same physical location. This can make it harder to collaborate and communicate effectively, which can impact productivity.

Finally, hybrid working can be challenging for those who prefer a more structured work environment or those who struggle with self-motivation.

In conclusion, hybrid working has both advantages and disadvantages. It offers increased flexibility and the potential for cost savings, but it can also create challenges with work-life balance and communication. Ultimately, the decision to adopt a hybrid working model should be based on the specific needs and preferences of both the employees and the employer.
