It’s really only over the last 6-9 months as we emerge from the pandemic that we’ve seen a concerted effort by organizations to develop some sort of hybrid or future working model. At one extreme we see companies closing offices and moving to full remote, and at the other people demanding coming back to office. Somewhere in the middle, lie those who are offering complete flexibility to choose, and those setting out some boundaries on the number of days remote or in the office
The definition of what hybrid really means is often unclear and only narrowly focused on ‘time and place’. We notice many people offering opinions on the subject and too few offering practical guidance and support.
Some companies are now starting to do more to support leaders and teams to make the right choices about what works for them, based on the different types of work they do and the preferences, capabilities and capacity of people actually doing the work. When and where people work then become options that teams can choose to ensure they can perform to their best.
In this program you will explore a 4 stage approach to hybrid-working, “WORK-PEOPLE-TIME-PLACE”, and learn with others how to really engage your organization in making hybrid working a success.
Fundamental changes to ways of working serve to amplify or hide team issues with the risk that performance suffers.
Shift to remote working during the pandemic has been seismic and many teams have been left to make it up as they go along.
Companies are now developing hybrid working policies as offices open up, and kicking off ‘Future of Work’ policies and programmes.
Leaders understand that WORK and PEOPLE are the fundamental determinants of hybrid working success, and that defining TIME and PLACE is not sufficient to create high performance. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ solution.
Leaders are responsible for facilitating their teams through this challenge, and are looking for guidance and practical tools to do that effectively.
