Hybrid Work is the New Black

3 Simple strategies to do it well


Learn how to offer flexibility and effective hybrid work arrangements to attract, engage - and retain - top talent.

Leverage your remote team for a greater customer experience and competitive advantage.

72% of the global workforce wants the ability to work from home (or wherever they choose) for part or all of their work week. But an almost equal percentage of senior leaders want their employees to come back into the office.

Bridging this gap is one of the most difficult challenges you as C-Suite Leader, General Manager and HR Director face today.

Especially if your leaders fear that when their team are not in the office:

  • Productivity suffers
  • The team will lose the ability to collaborate
  • Creativity and innovation will go down
  • Culture will be degraded
  • New employees will lose out on those organic learning moments that occur when people sit next to each other

Let’s face it, what they (and possibly even you) are really thinking (but rarely saying) is that:

  • You cannot trust your employees
  • You will lose control of what your teams are doing
  • Customer service and quality will go down

Unfortunately, these very fears are what ACTUALLY drives loss of productivity, innovation, creativity and culture.


Because the ability to control (or lack thereof) when, where and how they work is what is driving candidates to participate in the Great Resignation and turn down roles.


Fortunately, solving the hybrid work challenge doesn’t have to be hard and when you do your employees, your clients - and you - will all benefit.
