Flexible & Hybrid Working

Considering introducing flexible and hybrid working into your business?
Has COVID and working from home changed the expectations of your team?
Trying to balance the needs of the business with the expectations of your team?

Post lockdown, working from home and living with the pandemic have brought real challenges to businesses as they navigate an ever changing and moving landscape of employment. Our perceptions and expectations about where and when we work have changed beyond recognition and for good. If as an employer you want to engage, retain and motivate your teams you will need to scrutinise and adjust your working arrangements to accommodate expectations, health and safety concerns, respond to practical difficulties caused by self isolation, levels of sick absence and adverse impact on well being.  It is estimated that 50% of employees will leave their employer if appropriate provisions are not put in place to respond to concerns and challenges (CIPD).

If you’re trying to figure out how to introduce hybrid, agile and flexible working into your business we can help. We can work with you to assess your team ‘s expectations, work with leadership and other senior teams to work out a framework and principles that would allow both the business needs and those of your team to be met.

Questions we can answer.
Problems we can solve.

  • What expectations do your team have?
  • How can you balance the needs of the business with those of your team?
  • What practicalities and challenges introducing a flexible working model will have onthe business?
  • What impact could this have on your contractual policies and procedures?
  • How do you manage those in the team who are unhappy with the changes?

How we can help.

  • Assess the mood of your team and discover what they’re looking for in their working arrangements.
  • Work with leadership and other senior teams to identify a framework and principles that would allow the organisation to meet business needs and accommodate a consistent approach to employment.

  • Recommend changes to formal and contractual policies and procedures would be beneficial.

Where we add value.

As an objective third party we can stand back and see across all the operational divides, providing bridges for tensions and possible conflicts. We can open up areas of discussion cross fertilise ideas and suggestions and advise on policies and procedures.

We are an independent and additional resource that can facilitate discussion, provide some shepherding if necessary and call people to account and ensure it is delivered in a reasonable timescale.
