Many employees are looking for a mix of remote and office working. How can HR professionals adapt policies and practices to ensure hybrid working is effective for the workforce and the business?

HR for Hybrid Working covers everything that people professionals need to succeed in a hybrid working model and manage the transition to this new way of working. It shows why and how contractual documents, policies, pay and reward terms need to change, how to manage changing employee expectations and how to assess and communicate to staff what work can be done partially remotely and manage the impact on company culture. There is also insight on how to adapt learning and development (L&D) and wellbeing activities to ensure they support employee development.

Alongside expert guidance on how to assess what technology solutions are right for the business, HR for Hybrid Working explains how to manage inductions and exits from the organization when the location of employees is changeable. Packed full of advice, examples and case studies, this book also provides a dedicated section on the new skills needed by HR professionals as organizational roles, structures and processes change in a hybrid working model.
