Considering hybrid working for your organisation

Considering the needs of employees in hybrid working

You should discuss your employee's needs, and consider how you can support them.

For example, consider:

Avoid generalising or making assumptions.

For example, Sam is a wheelchair user. Their manager thought they might prefer to work from home to avoid public transport. But Sam is worried about being isolated and would prefer to come into the workplace.

Requests for hybrid working

If an employee asks you about hybrid working you should consider their request.

Make sure you know why they're asking – they could be making a request for a reasonable adjustment under the Equality Act.

An employee might make a written request to change some of the terms and conditions of their employment. This might be a formal flexible working request. You must respond to flexible working requests appropriately.
