The hybrid work environment of today and tomorrow will require different skills and competencies not just from employees, but from management as well. Managers must find ways to engage and recognize workers who may not be naturally suited to the low visibility environment of remote work. Helping those employees succeed benefits the entire organization.
I am interested to see the effect on recruiting. Will there be added emphasis on flexibility and adaptability as predictors of hybrid work success? Or can a management team find greater organizational success by finding ways to assist those not naturally suited to the realities of a hybrid workplace?
"Hybrid environments reward employees who think and act adaptably and flexibly, who are able to organize and coordinate across a complex and dynamic environment, and who are able to establish and provide evidence of their own trustworthiness when working in a context of low visibility."
