The Key to a Successful Hybrid Work Transition: Intentional Collaboration [Upcoming Webinar]

Managing a successful hybrid work model is a balancing act. You need to satisfy both company and employee needs.

As a good leader, you must deeply care about employee engagement and productivity. For that, you have to find the right balance between face-to-face collaboration and having focused time alone at home. But, how does one achieve all that?

You need to develop workplace policies that encourage in-person collaboration and ensure a healthy split between working from home and working from the office.

The first step in making hybrid work a success requires tools that enable employees not only to adhere to those policies, but also see the value in them.

Nov 17th | 11am Eastern

The great transition to hybrid work is in full swing.

Companies are struggling to answer many hybrid work questions, including:

  • How do you transition smoothly from remote or office work to hybrid?
  • What will hybrid work’s impact be on company culture?
  • Do you implement a schedule for the entire company or do you let everyone decide when to come to the office?

The bad news is that there’s no one-size-fits all solution to hybrid work.

Here are a few of the things you can find in it:

Join us in powering the future of work!

Become an OfficeRnD partner today.

Even prior to Covid, the workplace was changing. Working from home. Working in the office. Working from a coffee shop. Working from a coworking space. A combination of all of these. As the world rebounds from the pandemic, that change is accelerating. Companies are providing their employees with a lot more choice in terms of how and where they work. The “company office” is quickly becoming but one of many locations where work happens.

Consequently, many companies are choosing to have an office footprint that is smaller than the size of the team using it. This is creating a new challenge: Managing access to the workplace, the use of desks, meeting rooms, and other resources - all while keeping employees engaged.

OfficeRnD Hybrid helps companies enable and facilitate desk booking, meeting space reservation, visitor management, and much more!

If you are a consulting firm helping companies navigate these uncharted waters of hybrid work - or any provider of services to companies looking to the future of work - and would like to learn more about our solutions and how you can become an OfficeRnD referral partner, book some time on my calendar here and let’s chat!
