Hybrid working – now is the time to ask! If you haven’t already.

Many of us worked at home during the pandemic, but as more and more workplaces want their staff back in the office in some capacity – now is the time to ask about hybrid working!

The key word being – flexible!

It’s time to think, has your employer offered any support to transition into hybrid working? Or does your manager want you to return to the office full-time?

If you haven’t already, now is the time to ask about hybrid working.

So, what is hybrid working/work?

Hybrid work is a flexible approach that allows employees to split their time between working in the office and working from home. Hybrid work varies in flexibility, there are different types of hybrid work policies companies are using:

  • Employees can choose which day(s) to come into the office
  • Location-flexible arrangement
  • Employees to combine onsite and offsite work
  • Remote work

If you’re wanting to become a hybrid worker or at least start a conversation with your manager here’s how to start.

  1. First off think about your role and be realistic, do you manage a team that need support? Do you have key face to face meetings in your week schedule? Do you need to be client facing?
  2. Then be clear about what you’re asking for. Work out what days you want to be in the office and what days you want to work elsewhere.
  3. Highlight why it will be a positive step for your business and make sure you emphasise how it won’t negatively impact the team or your KPI’s.
  4. Then plan out the structure of your days, explain how you’ll be contactable and even suggest a trial period.
  5. Finally, to really seal the deal. Let your manager know how you will continue to contribute to team culture still when working hybrid.

If you company is dead set on not offering you a flexible working environment, do you research on what companies do offer it. Like us!
