Hybrid working seems like the natural route but it requires careful thought

This month I have been working with the global communications company Poly on a report on the future of work. You can download the full report here.

For the TLDR sufferers amongst you, let me summarise. We are not all going to be working remotely now. The office has too many advantages, and remote work is problematic for many. But we are undoubtedly going to be working in a hybrid fashion. This requires incredibly careful thought about how you give people freedom and flexibility while not disadvantaging others and maintaining coherence and collaboration.

While I may have come across as negative about remote working in recent weeks, this is only in response to the massively over-hyped idea that we will all be working remotely now. As ever, what is needed is a balanced, considered approach to the future of work.
