How to make hybrid working a success for your teams (5 tips)

As a result of the pandemic, working styles have changed for good. There's more of an emphasis on flexibility, with many companies adopting a hybrid approach to work. So, here are our top tips to help you and your teams make it a success, no matter where they're based.

Remote working became the norm in 2020 as most offices closed their doors due to the pandemic. This year we're seeing more and more businesses introduce a hybrid working model for their staff. But with new and unfamiliar ways of working come challenges and obstacles to overcome. So, that's why we've collated our five top tips to help your company transition to a hybrid working style smoothly and effectively, without compromising on productivity, creativity or employee wellbeing and engagement.

What is hybrid working?

So, before we dive into our top tips, what actually is hybrid working? Also known as 'blended' working, hybrid working models allow employees to perform their job roles in various locations throughout the week: in the office, at home, or in another location like a cafe. It's neither an office-first nor a remote-first environment, but a balanced mix of the two where employees can work some days in a central office and other days elsewhere, if they choose.

Flexibility, trust and adaptability are key components of hybrid working, which is the route many companies, big and small, are taking out of the pandemic. In fact, 43 out of 50 of the UK's biggest employers have said that they don't plan on bringing back staff to the office full-time.
