Whether you are a leader, facilities manager, HR professional, or IT expert, chances are you have had a conversation, inspired by the COVID working from home experience, about how people should or could work differently in your organisation.
As organisations navigate their way through some complex decisions brought about by the new hybrid reality, it is important to avoid the potential pitfalls of shifting to a new way of working without understanding what is at play. Here are some of the common mistakes and how to avoid them.
Most workflows are fluid over days, weeks and even months, so it is about 'where is the right location for us to work right now?' Too much focus on controlling attendance vs working from home can simply create a different type of inflexibility. Apple recently experienced a very public pushback from many of its employees on this sort of approach.
Getting the right model for hybrid working or a new approach to flexibility is about thinking strategically about what a new way of working can deliver for your people and organisation, and then bringing it to life through communication and policy, leadership behaviours and decisions about the right physical space and technology to make it a success.
