Managing a hybrid team guide

By April 27, 2022 No Comments

As more and more organisations formalise their hybrid working policies and more employees express a desire to work from home for at least part of the week, the importance of knowing how to effectively manage a hybrid team is clear.   We were delighted to partner with the Diversity Project and Remote Kontrol to develop a practical guide for managers of hybrid teams that looks at some of the different challenges leaders may face and how to set up a hybrid team to work collaboratively and thrive.

Covering the process from setting a team up for success to building a culture that works over the longer term, this short guide includes topics such as

 

  • understanding your own biases as a manager
  • understanding your management style and what may need to change
  • role modelling what you want from your team
  • where to go to seek support
  • thinking about outputs rather than location
  • Getting the tech and onboarding right
  • balancing the needs of the organisation and the individual
  • ensuring everyone has a voice and can contribute
  • avoiding presenteeism bias
  • maintaining your own welfare as a manager
