9 Questions to Shape Your Hybrid Working Strategy

As the world goes back to a “new normal” following the peak of the COVID19 pandemic, organisations are investing a lot of time in planning and discovering how to navigate this next step. As offices re-open and cities start to fill with people again, what does this mean for your staff?

For many, the answer is a move to hybrid working: the combination of working both remotely, and from a physical workplace.

As hybrid workplace consultants, we encourage organisations to put a strategy in place that ensures every person can thrive within the hybrid workplace. Because every organisation is different, you need a strategy that reflects the general trends in society – whilst capturing the essence of what makes your organisation a great place to work.

We’ve put together 9 key questions that you should be asking internally, or already be able to answer, when planning your hybrid work strategy. These relate back to the 3 key pillars of any Hybrid Workplace strategy:


  • Change Management, the people
  • Physical Environment, the place
  • Technology Platform, the tech


We’ve also highlighted these questions based on the common themes which keep coming up when talking to our customers: flexible working, employee wellbeing and effective meetings.

Questions to ask about Change Management, the people side of your Hybrid Workplace strategy:

  1. Are you giving people clarity around what is expected of them and their work patterns?
  2. Who owns “Employee Experience” for your organisation?​
  3. How do you change the meeting culture in a Hybrid Workplace?​


Questions to ask about your Physical Space when looking into a Hybrid Workplace strategy:


  1. How do we balance the need to manage capacity with flexibility for staff?
  2. How do we ensure everyone can strike the right life/work balance?​
  3. How can we create an equality of experience regardless of location?​


Questions to ask about the Technology Platform you are using when moving to a Hybrid Working model:


  1. Does your platform allow effective communication to a Hybrid Workforce?
  2. How can you use data from Microsoft 365 to improve Wellbeing?​
  3. How can you reduce the number of “bloated” or ineffective meetings?​
