If you haven’t already, make sure you check out our blog on Hybrid work: why it’s important and how it benefits your business. For many local businesses, it is opening up recruitment opportunities, securing top talent and offering employees flexibility and greater work / life balance.
But how to effectively handle a hybrid workplace? Here, Hunter Recruitment Group have put together a few tips for having an effective and efficient hybrid workplace model in your business.
The team at HRG have long embraced technology in all facets of our work and this is especially important in blending remote work and office / on-site operations. With the right tools and technology to communicate and collaborate – and with the introduction of a secure cloud-based system – your team can be hybrid at the drop of a hat.
Office / Worksite
Rather than a fully remote offering, the hybrid workplace model is a combination and therefore the office or worksite environment is still very important. Your space may be able to be redesigned for the reduction of expenses, but it is also important to offer staff places to collaborate and connect when they are physically together – for example, can you offer multi-purpose meeting and meal spaces for your team?
For the hybrid workplace model to be effective the connection to your people and care for your team must be maintained. Regular check-ins, performance reviews and access to decision-makers will still be important for all employees. Just because team members aren’t physically present in an office space, they must still be considered in the overall achievements, planning and future goals of an organisation.
If you invest in the supporting technology and ensure you have effective communication tools the hybrid workplace model can certainly bring opportunities to your business.
