Many companies today are working in the new "hybrid work" culture. Employees sit both in the office and in the home office and can switch between office and home as needed. In order to implement such a way of working, a variety of different tools and video conferencing solutions are available.

Many people have been working in a home office for over a year. During this time, they have noticed what works well for them in the home office (e.g. regular breaks. mornings without video call) and what not so much (e.g. being in front of the screen all day in meetings, looking after children at the same time). Teams also had to reorganize: Instead of morning coffee, there were virtual meetings, new technological tools were introduced, and remote skills were acquired.
Joint systematic reflection enables a team to precisely analyze its collaboration, communication and work culture during home office time. On this basis, the team can jointly develop new principles for hybrid work. In this way, valuable discussions take place, which in turn strengthen trust in each other.
Of course, establishing a hybrid work model depends on a company's resources. Nevertheless, implementation can work not only for large companies, but also for small and medium-sized enterprises. Without question, the most important prerequisites are a smooth digital infrastructure, maintaining the social climate, and understanding and enthusiasm for the concept on the part of both superiors and employees.
Individual regulations and arrangements can always be made after the foundation stone has been laid or changed if necessary. One thing is certain, however: If a company embraces the concept of hybrid working, it can benefit from a wide range of advantages - as can its employees.
As many organizations make the move to hybrid working, clear communication and mutual trust will be essential to mastering it effectively.
First and foremost, it's about staying connected. Employees need to feel that they are part of something bigger and have a connection to the organization. The most important thing in this transition to different ways of working will be how companies maintain a connection with their employees, whether they work in teams or alone.
For this way of working to work, employees must feel that they are trusted enough to do the work in the way that works best for them. Everyone in the company must understand what they are working toward, and there must be clear goals and processes. Both come about when there is a corporate culture based on transparency and dialog.
A "virtual leader" must be able to motivate and encourage his team over a distance, but also to recognize and resolve potential conflicts. The challenge here is to recognize the emotional state of the employees even though they are not sitting face-to-face. This is not the only reason why he should respond to the needs of his employees with a great deal of tact and always express necessary criticism in a factual and constructive manner.
