Introduction to Hybrid Workplace Risks

The resilient organisation depends on its people. Over the pandemic many organisations have put the relationship with their people under significant strain by doing their best, but not doing enough, to make the hybrid Workplace Experience low-stress and productive. 

Alongside this challenge, employers are having difficulty attracting and retaining a quality staff. The proportion of people in New Zealand with high turnover intentions was 46.4% late last year, according to AUT’s Wellbeing at Work survey. 

As employers consider what they can do to keep their best and brightest, they are coming up against hybrid ways of working. Organisations were not prepared for hybrid work and many haven’t built in appropriate responses or capability. Hybrid work has created issues with burnout, lower productivity and increased tension between colleagues. Each of these issues threatens the quality of work being done in an organisation, and its capacity to deliver going forward.

Employers can’t solve what they don’t understand, which is why this half-day course will give you the tools you need to understand the risks and their appropriate mitigations.

This half day training will deliver: 

  • A deep understanding of the root causes of the people issues associated with hybrid work
  • Actionable insights into how to address these root causes and which parts of the business should be involved
  • Research-based discussion points to take back to your organisation
  • Specific situations when an organisation should be asking the right questions, to ensure their risks are covered
