A rapid shift towards remote working is here to stay as 73% of employees would like to work from home on a permanent basis. This has had a dramatic effect on how people manage their own workload and communicate with colleagues. Aside from professional life, it also has an effect on people’s work life balance but not always in a positive way.

This is the sister course to our ‘Managing remote teams’ course. It offers an employee centric view of working remotely and how to adapt so that we continue to bring our best. It offers useful communication, planning and reporting techniques and explores how we can continue feeling a sense of morale and team even when we are not physically around our colleagues.
This is an increasingly topical and important course and one of the first of its kind. It has been developed from our experience in developing and running several large ‘agile working’ programmes that focused on both managers and employees. The success of these courses informed various articles and also saw us work with Brighton University in how remote working affects worker psychology.

What’s the big trend in remote / hybrid working?
So what happened to Covid? At least here in the UK, it’s as though someone just suddenly switched it off! Practically the very large majority of people are now behaving socially just as they would have pre pandemic. It always amazes me how huge problems in life can suddenly disappear, often just as quickly as they manifested themselves! For me it’s another example of that very phenomena, one I first came across when reading ‘Who moved my cheese’.
Hybrid (is not) working
On January the 7th 2022 Camilla Cavendish wrote an article in the UK Financial Times entitled ‘It’s time to admit that hybrid is not working.’ It makes the case that CEO’s maybe tiptoeing around the return to work question, while the balance of focus on staff wellbeing has overcome the imperative for organisation or even customer wellbeing.
