With the advent of technology that more closely enmesh work and life, a rigid 9am–5pm schedule doesn’t always make the most sense for all people. Many organizations have adopted flexible work schedules for employees who don’t need to be in the office for 8 hours straight to do their job well. Oftentimes, this can look like coming into the office early and leaving early or coming in later and staying later. Flexible work schedules are especially beneficial for working parents or employees with responsibilities outside of work.
Don’t let hybrid work get in the way of collaboration. Give employees an easy way to manage their hybrid schedules, invite colleagues to a seat, and book the nearest table.
