This Episode: Setting Up New Ways Of Working

In the wake of lockdown, many businesses are seeking to ensure that workplaces, going forward, are better equipped for the new world of business and the new ways of working. In this episode, Lucinda shares ten practical methods for making sure that an effective hybrid work environment can be achieved.

Key Takeaways

  • The first step is to consult with your people in order to get a real sense of what they see as the future of the workplace.
  • Indeed, a workplace thrives on win-win situations. Furthermore, look for ways in which we can provide win-wins for our people, as well as delegating responsibilities and where and how to escalate matters.
  • Additionally, we must recognise the challenges of hybrid working, taking into account that if we allow the freedom of working at home, how will the workplace operate if all choose to do so at once.
  • Lastly, never be afraid to pilot these new scenarios – to test and refine. Also, we may recognise better ways of working, feedback at all times is essential and this is a learning process for everyone.
