Navigating in-person, hybrid, and remote work
Some companies have embraced a flexible approach to hybrid and remote work.
Others really, really want their employees on-site. If you as a leader need or want your team members in-person on-site (part-time or full-time), make sure you make that experience positive and productive.
Make the office space comfortable for them. Consider lighting, chairs, and office spaces with doors. While some people had to deal with extra distractions working from home during the pandemic, many people liked being able to shut the door and focus, without the sights and sounds of the office around them.
Use the in-person time effectively. Maximize collaboration time and training/mentoring opportunities when people are there. Having someone working solo at a desk on things they could have been doing from home without having to drive for 40 minutes each way is not the best use of their time and efforts.
One size does not fit all. If you are able to make sure that each person has what they need to be productive and successful, you are more likely to have high performance and high retention. Check in with your people to make sure they are getting what they need.
