When the pandemic hit in Spring 2020, the first lockdown presented an unprecedented challenge for those organisations unaccustomed to remote and agile working. Many would say a positive outcome from the pandemic is recognition by the vast majority of senior leaders that remote working has not affected productivity levels.
As a consequence, there has been much talk of a ‘new norm’ – new ways of working where organisations are open to having more of their workforce operating remotely. The division of teams may present a challenge for managers however, and it is important to consider contributing factors at the outset.
In this white paper, we consider the importance of fairness and inclusivity when it comes to a hybrid workforce – key contributors to attracting and retaining talent and a successful, high-performing organisation. The paper also includes some recommendations and strategies to help create a fair and inclusive hybrid workforce.
It is a complex challenge which organisations need to address if they are to successfully navigate the new ‘norms’ and behaviours which once were short-term adaptations to the pandemic, but now sit as long-term expectations in the minds of employees.
If you have any thoughts on this white paper or would like to discuss any of the issues raised in it, please do get in touch.
All the best,
