Your answers are showing us that you’re not quite there yet with regards to implementing a hybrid/remote working set up. And that’s okay. It takes time to shift from a permanent working environment, 5 days a week, to something a lot more flexible. There are many things to consider, such as each employees individual needs due to personal circumstances such as living arrangements, location or health.

It’s really important that you speak to your employees on a regular basis to understand what is going to help them to do their best work, and perform to both their and your expectations. Consider upping the regularity of a pulse survey to your teams, holding focus groups and speaking with employees that have line management responsibilities. Some people may not feel confident speaking in a 1 on 1 situation, so provide many different mediums for their feedback to be collected.

Your answers are showing us that you have definitely taken positive first steps, so well done! Transitioning from an embedded way of working to something brand new, with all of it’s bumps in the road is challenging. But you know there is light at the end of that tunnel, and the bumps will be worth it in the end.

Now that you don’t see or speak to everyone every single day like you would in a permanent workspace, even if it would’ve just been grabbing a tea or coffee, it’s so important to maintain strong lines of social communication with your employees. When you’re sending that email or message, jumping on a call that’s supposed to be ‘all business’, make time before you dive in to the nitty gritty to just have a chat. Find out how people are feeling, what else they need to feel supported and be productive, healthy and happy.
