1) Tip 1 – Reset
This is a good time to reflect and reset. Due to the sudden onset of the pandemic in 2020, people adjusted quickly to home working. Hybrid working will involve permanent home working, albeit part-time. So, it is important to review the following:
- Do I need a better routine working from home?
- Can I optimise my workstation and equipment?
- What distractions cause me to lose time and focus?
2) Tip 2 – Plan
To get the most benefit from hybrid working, consider how to split the work between home and office. Tasks that require a high level of focus are more suited to a quiet home environment. Time in the office enables group work such as problem-solving, innovation or coaching. So make a weekly plan and consider what is the best focus for each day. You can access our Hybrid Weekly Planner from our Resources page.
3) Tip 3 – Deliver
Successful hybrid working is enabled when each person takes responsibility for delivering in their role. This will build trust in the model and ensure that it is retained. It can help any remove residual stigma about remote working. It helps shift assessment of performance away from presenteeism towards outcomes and achievements. Both employees and managers have a part to play.
