There are clear benefits to working in the office: being in the same room as others allows for spontaneous conversations, natural collaboration and relationship building.
But working remotely can be highly effective too: people can focus on important tasks without interruption. Not to mention avoiding the commute and being able to work in the comfort of their own surroundings.
A hybrid approach offers the best of both worlds, but many teams aren't getting it right yet. For instance the idea of set days (i.e. come into the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays) is useful only if you tailor your work on those days to suit. There's no point coming in to the office to work on solitary tasks - better to use these days for team meetings, brainstorms and catch-ups.
Plus, when people are working remotely more than before, you need to work twice as hard to foster relationships, collaborate effectively and stay aligned.
This workshop helps teams tackle these issues, together - making plans for effective collaboration in and away from the office.
