Develop the future workplace vision
We develop a vision with your leadership team to learn where they want the organisation to be in two years’ time. We know some leaders have concerns about the impact of hybrid working and we dedicate time to reassuring individuals about the steps we’ll take together to avoid potential hurdles on the path towards hybrid working.
Understand what’s happening
The next step is to discover how your company operates. This involves analysing what your staff are doing and the unintended consequences of their actions. We establish the facts on the ground by conducting workshops, holding one-to-one interviews, running staff surveys and carrying out desk utilisation studies. This enables us to gain a comprehensive understanding of work processes at your organisation, employee attitudes towards hybrid working, and a true reflection of office attendance.
For when we know how your business operates, we can support you to get where you want to be.
Train your leaders to become hybrid working leaders
We provide training for managers to discuss the implementation of a hybrid work model. Our research with the Centre for Evidence Based Management, revealed that a transformational style of leadership is likely to be most successful in leading hybrid teams and that a psychologically safe culture will allow teams and individuals to perform at their best.
We upskill leaders so they understand the nuances and practices for leading hybrid teams and equip them with the techniques to confidently facilitate sessions with their teams to form Working Together Agreements. A Working Together Agreement covers a range of topics including:
As part of this process, teams share ideas for how they can enhance the six factors we scientifically identified as the most important factors of high performing teams. These conversations help employees to feel engaged and, in the process, embed the changes long-term.
We develop a scalable framework and produce company-specific playbooks to enable results to be replicated across your organisation globally. Everything looks good on paper, but we know that implementing change requires skill and patience. We can work with you to deliver customised change management programmes.
