Embracing hybrid work? Here are some tips to help you be successful!

By Emily Fossey, Sr. Technical Recruiter/Director of Recruiting

Hybrid work is no longer an anomaly or a special case. With close to 83% of employees preferring hybrid work, hybrid is here to stay for the foreseeable future. As the hybrid movement continues to accelerates, people are still figuring out “how to hybrid” effectively.

 Here are some tips to create a healthy and productive hybrid workplace.


1. Keep Set Working Hours

It can be a little more challenging to keep regular working hours when working from home than in an office because you don’t have to leave your home “office.” As tempting as it may be, avoid checking email and team communication tools outside of work hours, whether it be on a laptop or a phone.

Downtime from work is important. When you’re working in the office and elsewhere, don’t forget to:

  • Step away from your work, rest your eyes, and have a good stretch.
  • Schedule breaks throughout the day to keep your productivity at peak.
  • Take a lunch break.
  • Set a daily start work and finish time. Do your best to stick to it.


2. Communicate with Colleagues

It’s important to stay in communication with your work colleagues as needed throughout the day. When working outside the office, be as responsive as you are on days, you’re working in it. Maybe even more. It demonstrates to employers that you’re engaged and appreciative of your hybrid work status. Most importantly, it shows that you’re capable of handling a hybrid work schedule.


3. Dress for Work

When you’re at home working, you’re still “at work.” Make sure to dress for the part, especially if there’s a chance you may have to appear on camera for scheduled video conferencing calls OR if a spontaneous meeting is scheduled, you are ready!


4. Have Tools That Work

When you’re working from home, it’s especially important to have working tools, such as dependable internet. It’s also expected. When video conferencing from home, you may be using your speaker. If that won’t work for in-office workdays, be prepared with earbuds or headphones so you’re not broadcasting to the room. Hybrid work requires a bit more planning! Make sure you test your tools, especially before an interview and/or a big meeting the night before OR log in a minimal of 15 minutes before. That way, if there are issues, you have time to troubleshoot.


5. Set Up Your Workspace at Home

Make sure you have a work space when you’re working from home. The sofa won’t do for long work hours over months or even years. Especially, for your own sake (and posture), Investing in a desk and dedicated workspace will help set you up for success when working from home and help create healthy boundaries.


When done right, hybrid working environments offer a fantastic work/ life balance and can help teams to be more productive. These simple steps should help your workplace have a thriving hybrid environment into 2023 and beyond!
