Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the topic of flexible and remote work has gained huge attention and has hardly been out of the media headlines, from the moment organisations around the world were forced into sending their employees home to work as the only available option for ensuring business continuity in the face of harsh lockdown conditions. 

Whilst almost everybody thought this would be a short term solution at the time, the lockdowns went on for much longer than we ever imagined, to the point where working from home is now the new norm for many. Now, more than 2 years on, even though many countries have lifted restrictions after having reaching appropriate vaccination targets, the vast majority of knowledge workers are still working from home.. at least some of the time. 

Having experienced the benefits of increased workplace flexibility first-hand, and it’s potential for achieving a better overall work-life balance, many employees are understandably not keen to give it up. 

This has led to companies seeing new 'hybrid' work arrangements as the perfect solution - hybrid arrangements which see employees spend some of their time back at the office, and the rest of the week working from home, or another remote work location - but how exactly do these hybrid work arrangements, work?! This course tackles the subject of hybrid work and discusses the key themes, as identified in leading research conducted first-hand by the Instructor, and creates a framework you can follow for designing and implementing your own hybrid work arrangements.

This course is specifically designed to enable you to:

  1. Understand what 'hybrid work' really means and how it actually operates in practice,
  2. Examine some of the most popular arrangements for hybrid work as identified by senior business leaders,
  3. Learn how to implement hybrid work arrangements, and design an effective performance measurement system, for monitoring and evaluating your hybrid workforce. 

The course now starts with an introduction into the topic of hybrid work, which is emerging as the preferred work arrangement for many employees, that can also support many operational benefits for organizations.
