Spurred on by the disruptions of the pandemic, organizations are reimagining the very basic concepts of where, how, and with whom work happens. One thing is clear amidst the ongoing uncertainty: our hybrid future has arrived.
But what does this future look like? How will it change the way we interact with colleagues, get hired, switch jobs, and build our careers? How will it change the way we lead our teams? While the answers will be different for each organization, there are pioneering companies and emerging research redefining what our hybrid future will look like—and proving it’s an opportunity for growth and transformation.
Hybrid Working answers some of the biggest questions facing managers and leaders in this new world: When, where, and how does our team interact in person? How do we grow our teams and organizations when our methods of recruiting, training, and onboarding have all suddenly changed? How do we maintain a strong culture, nourish creativity, and optimize both productivity and employee wellbeing? How do we build hybrid teams that are inclusive and equitable amidst challenges both old and new?
There are no one-size-fits-all answers when it comes to hybrid work. But there are research-based best practices and experience-informed strategies for ensuring that our organizations and employees reap both the benefits of working remotely and the strengths of traditional co-located work.
In Hybrid Working, managers will learn practical lessons directly from the world’s leading experts on this emerging discipline and alongside other leaders and managers at the forefront of this massive change—and ultimately position themselves for success in this transition and beyond.
