Webinars and guidance for managers

Hybrid working

The University introduced the Hybrid working policy and principles to give teams greater flexibility around their normal hours, time or place of work with limited formal process.

Not all colleagues are able to work in a hybrid manner owing to the nature of their roles. Therefore, we also request line managers / Heads to remind such colleagues of the opportunities to request formal flexible working if they wish.

Communication

Effective communication is essential. Regular communications between teams, across teams, one to ones as well as on a collective basis are required to make hybrid working a success.

Prompt questions:
  • How well is hybrid working for individuals and across teams?
  • How has hybrid working impacted on the connectivity of the team?
  • What steps have you taken to create social opportunities for the team?
  • If necessary, what steps can you take to improve communication across your team or with individual team members?
