Whilst offices and workplaces have opened up again many of us are now working both in the office and from home. “Hybrid working” is becoming the norm for lots of organisations and businesses, but we need to make sure that we are managing this approach carefully so as to avoid any complications that may arise.
Ideally, organisations should have a clear flexible working policy in place, which includes home working options. This kind of policy can help you set expectations for staff, such as when they should be logged on, how they will handle communication, and how they will log their time. Having these rules defined can help employees feel prepared and connected to the team.
If you would like help developing or updating your flexible working policy, please contact us for information and support.
Lastly, October is Black History Month, and we are delighted that a number of local events and activities are planned to celebrate the achievements and contributions of black people both in the UK and throughout the world. You can find details of these at https://www.lbhf.gov.uk/arts-and-parks/events/race-equality-and-black-history-cultural-events
We have some truly outstanding and inspirational BAME organisations, community leaders and individuals in Hammersmith & Fulham and we need to share and celebrate their stories!
As always, Sobus is here to provide organisations with the advice and support they need – please don’t hesitate to contact us.
