Managing the Hybrid Work Experience

Preparing managers for leading in a hybrid work environment starts with a clear understanding of what the hybrid environment will look like and what the new norms will be, says virtual work expert John Hester.

It also requires careful consideration to ensure you understand the implications of this decision.

“More and more employees are looking for jobs that are either fully remote or, at a minimum, hybrid,” says Hester. “The companies I’m working with that are doing hybrid right are putting the implementation of these plans into the hands of individual managers.”

For these managers, this means sorting through a variety of questions for each person on the team: Can this person’s job be done fully remote or does it require some onsite work? What is their working preference? What work of the team needs to be done in person, if any?
