Are you new to manging a hybrid team? Are some of your team going to continue to work from home whilst others return to the office? Do you want to learn how to get the most from a dispersed team and understand the legal implications? If so, then this 3-hour interactive workshop could be just for you.

71% of employers say adapting to remote work has been a challenge. (Society for Human Resource Management survey, 2020). Home working and productivity, pre-pandemic was considered by some managers an oxymoron. The pandemic has brought about a step change in employer attitudes, with 28% employers citing that productivity has increased during home working, (CIPD,2020).

Managing a blended, hybrid team of homeworkers and work-based employees brings its own challenges. In today’s business landscape, an agile, flexible approach to performance management is needed. ‘Performance Management Must Evolve to Survive COVID-19’ (Gallup, 2020) highlights that new performance management approaches must be more ‘collaborative, adaptive and individualised.’ The Gallup research finds that the frequency of feedback with remote workers is critical for employee engagement.

Who should attend this workshop?

This workshop is for business owners and managers who want to better manage hybrid teams to work more effectively and boost productivity.

Please note that this workshop is open to trading SMEs based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Businesses located outside of this area will be unable to attend and instead directed to alternative support.
