Get Organized for Hybrid Working
When most people think of hybrid working, they imagine someone who works from home occasionally or travels for work often – the definition has evolved.
“The hybrid workweek—spent partly in the office, partly at home—has become the new norm. In fact, a 2022 Gallup survey.”
But there is another way to work hybrid: by having two permanent offices. One office at home and one office as the company location. With careful planning, you can organize yourself to transition between the two easily and effectively. Get intentional with how you spend your time based on where you’re working.
Plan Your Week and Your Work
Most people don’t plan their week and as a result, they waste a lot of time and energy. In order to be productive, you need to plan your week and organize your time. Map out what work is best done in the office vs. from home. Here are some tips on how to do that.
- Plan your schedule a week to 10 days in advance.
- Get super intentional with how you spend your time.
- Create a schedule with meetings and work-time blocks.
- Break down what work is best done from home vs in-office.
- Marry your to-do list or project tracking to use non-meeting efficiently.
Maximize Face-to-Face Time at the Office.
There are three types of meetings that are effective for getting work done. In-person, conference call, and video call. Each type has its own benefits and drawbacks that should be considered when trying to organize a meeting.
In-person meetings are still a valuable way to get work done. They provide an opportunity for team members to come together and communicate face-to-face. This can help with building relationships, understanding the project, and getting tasks completed. In-person meetings also allow for collaboration and discussion that can’t happen over the phone or online.
TYPES OF IN-PERSON MEETINGS
- Meetings that need discussions, deep problem-solving or involve multiple stakeholders.
- Personnel, professional development, reviews and 1×1 appointments.
- Appointments where remote technology hinders more than help communications or collaboration.
