The number of remote workers is on the rise. In fact, it is expected that 92% of people are expected to be able to work from home at least once a week after the pandemic.
It is important to make sure your new hybrid workplace is inclusive. You can achieve this by:
- Designing inclusive team meetings- Speak to your team and see if they have any ideas of ways meetings could work best for everyone. It is important to invest in reliable communication tools to keep in touch and stay connected. ‘We love work’ can help your employees stay in touch both in the office and from home.
- Make sure everybody's voice gets heard!- When starting a meeting just double check every person involved in the meeting can hear and be heard. It is also quite a nice idea to ask open ended questions as an employer to encourage your team to share their ideas. You could even assign each member of the team an agenda item to introduce and discuss.
- Understand that office and remote employees will both have different experiences- Those working in the office will have a very different experience to those working in isolation at home. Therefore you should make sure to speak to each employee individually not treat them as one. This way you can receive positive and negative feedback of what is and isn't working and can focus on retaining the positive experiences whilst improving the negative. ‘We Love Work’ is a great app that can provide support for your team and easily leave feedback.
