The Hybrid Work & Hybrid Meetings Guide
Guide Audience: C-Suite, Founders, HR Leads, Operation Directors & Digital Transformation leads
We are about to embark on a brand new journey, a hybrid journey.
July 1st was a landmark date for the business epicentre New York, July 19th is a landmark date in England, many other businesses in Asia, Australia and New Zealand have moved back to the office and are working in the hybrid model.
The tech giants have suggested 3 days a week, Apple’s 3 days a week in the office has come under fire from their employees, Google has experienced similar feedback and smaller companies are wrestling with how to make hybrid office work for their business.
Other large brands have stayed consistent in their messaging Facebook and Salesforce have been clear that Hybrid is in their long term future and Slack have moved to a digital first mentality.
We are re-entering the world of work where businesses will be experiencing the previously hotly discussed topics such as:
- Who ate my avocado?
- Are you using my cup?
- Did you really book this meeting room?
- And are you using my iPhone charger?
Will businesses be prepared to handle these micro-moments where these silly annoyances didn’t happen for so long.
Throughout this Hybrid workplace guide, you will see Hybrid Tip: to help you act upon important lessons and learnings from other businesses to help you and your business win Hybrid.
Many businesses will look for the ‘magic moment’ in the new Hybrid set-up, it is important you celebrate small wins along the journey and micro moments as a company, this will ensure you make a celebrated and smoother transition to Hybrid.
The magic moment will be a journey, however, you have likely made good progress while in lockdown/quarantine periods.
Many businesses who made the Hybrid switch pre-2020 celebrated small wins such as product releases, Hybrid offsites and Hybrid training sessions that develop teams collectiveness and delivery.
