Amplify performance of hybrid teams
Hybrid work culture combines the best aspects of both remote and on-site work. In a hybrid work culture, teams have the flexibility to choose where they want to work, depending on what will allow them to be most productive. This could mean working from home one day and coming into the office the next.
Challenges of hybrid work culture
- Lack of direction in terms of goals
- Poor communication
- Lack of collaboration
- Unmotivated employees
To achieve a successful hybrid work culture, it is important to consider the following:
Encourage regular communication and collaboration: Employees should feel comfortable communicating with each other, whether they are in the office or out of the office. Collaboration tools such as Slack or Google Hangouts can help with this.
Set clear goals for everyone: In a hybrid work culture, it is important to set clear goals for everyone and keep them aligned. By having a common goal, it will be easier to stay focused and motivated. Furthermore, alignment will help to ensure that everyone is working together toward the same goal.
Create a clear policy: Employees should know what is expected of them in terms of availability and communication. The policy should be clear and concise and should be communicated to all employees.
Encourage meetings: Even if some employees are working remotely, it is important to encourage face-to-face interaction when possible. This can help build relationships and trust between employees.
Use feedback & recognition: Ask your people for feedback and then take the time to listen to what they have to say. You can also use recognition to let your employees know that you appreciate their hard work. When you take the time to show your employees that you value their opinion and their contributions, it will help to keep them motivated and focused on common goals.
OKRs can help in achieving a hybrid work culture by setting clear goals and objectives that employees can strive to achieve, regardless of where they are working from. Having a system in place that tracks progress and holds everyone accountable will help to ensure that the hybrid model is successful.
