Opening your eyes is the hardest part — to the fact that the workplace is now virtual, that people are spread across office sites with some fully remote, but mostly, that a perspective change is required to succeed in this new reality.

The future is hybrid & hybrid is harder. For most companies I believe the future is hybrid (NOT fully remote) - w/ people working in offices, fully remote, & some flexing between the two. Don't underestimate the growing pains that'll come w/ this transition.

Why it’s harder:
Distance Bias will rear its ugly head again. Working fully remotely had its own challenges, but at least it was an equal playing field. As new hybrid teams form it creates groups located w/ the majority & groups located in the minority. (Link in comments for more on Distance Bias)

Keys to keeping hybrid engagement & productivity high:
🔑 Invest in upskilling – We at Virtual Work Insider teach the skills to lead, collaborate, & communicate effectively across distance. These skills aren't taught in standard leadership development programs. We've been trusted by companies like Toyota Financial Services, Clorox, & Beam Suntory

🔑 Create a location diversity & inclusion plan – It’s another vector of D&I that’s not usually talked about & it touches everything from employee engagement to career pathing.

🔑 Create a Head of Hybrid Role – A senior leader needs to be accountable as the integrator across all locations, to lead the workforce strategy & oversee the execution.
