Hybrid is always the way – in technology and in people. With a Hybrid approach to the office, it will be high time to put clear but effective policies in place for employees around eligibility, promotions, hiring, security, technology and other components. A written policy makes it fair for all. And the transparency allows employees to understand expectations.
A remote workforce presents challenges for management and employees. Managers have to trust employees and learn how to engage and coach them – mainly without being around them. Technology can fill some of those gaps, but managers will need to learn how to leverage the tech and learn to coach.
Writing a Work from Home policy doesn’t have to be overwhelming. There are some good tips here (https://lnkd.in/gB6a6qs) and several #WFH templates are available online. If you are looking to customize one for your business and your employees (I don’t think one size will fit all!), my wife Maggie Lima Radizeski would be happy to work with you to create a policy or talk you through it. She has experience as a para-legal and is a certified HR professional. You can message her on LinkedIn or you can call the RAD-INFO INC office at (813) 963-5884.
