New guidance on flexible working

Usefully, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (‘CIPD’) has published practical guidance on hybrid working. CIPD: Hybrid Working Practical Guidance (3 December 2021)

The guidance suggests that you:

  • define hybrid working in your business
  • consider your strategic goals
  • decide how to effectively recruit and manage hybrid workers
  • ensure that your hybrid working policies and practice are inclusive to avoid any unintended consequences.
  • train your managers to manage hybrid teams and support hybrid workers
  • continue to listen to your employees as they describe their experiences
  • remember that hybrid working is still evolving so adopt a flexible approach.
