Working and leading in a hybrid team

The approach and ethos towards the working environment has changed, we are likely to find ourselves transitioning to new ways of working together. For many teams this may mean a hybrid arrangement, where some work activites will take place on campus and some will be undertaken remotely.

Moving forwards we needs to ensure that decisions about working arrangements are proactive, deliberate and collaborative- balancing the needs of the individual team, students and the University. We may find that some temporary measures we put in place during lockdown have become more permanent fixtures in our working lives. There may also be the need for further change and evolution in our working practices, however, hybrid working is likely to feature for many teams.

The Future of Work programme aims to look at the longer-term strategic plans that will update and improve our future ways of working in a post-pandemic world, whilst the information here will support shorter-term operational planning and delivery.
