Incorporating hybrid work in the revitalized office is a massive challenge for leaders. Ensuring the safe return of the employees is a huge responsibility. Most leaders are busy maneuvering the right approach to complement hybrid working. However, there are some possible mistakes you must avoid to maintain employee safety. In this article at the Enterprisers Project, Carla Rudder underlines some common hybrid work mistakes. Leaders must avoid them to maintain a healthy work culture.
Most people are willing to resume office, while some are still skeptical of leaving home hygiene. Defining the hybrid working akin to the pre-pandemic scenario is one of the prime mistakes leaders can make. Avoid giving false hopes to the remote workforce in a bid to encourage them to resume office. Instead, help them reimagine and adjust to a new setup that promotes hygiene maintenance and social distancing as mandatory norms.
