Whatever the post-Covid future looks like, the workplace will be changing in many ways over the next few years, including adapting to more flexibility, automation, technology and globalisation, and the demands of younger generations of "digital native" employees. At the heart of ensuring high levels of productivity, engagement and contribution will be the ability of organisations and their leaders to build healthy hybrid teams. This is not merely about where people work, but also about how leaders are approaching key 'future of work' issues.
This IMS workshop outlines the key disruptive forces that will shape the workplace in the rest of the 2020s, focusing on the implications for teams and hybrid working. Using research and the experiences of firms that have been working this way for over a decade, it will detail the five key ingredients of healthy hybrid teams, and provide a framework that leaders can use to ensure these are developed in their own teams. There are no "one size fits all" solutions, and the masterclass therefore outlines an experimental approach using a hybrid readiness checklist that ensures all issues are considered.
