Hybrid working is here to stay. In June 2023, The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development reported that 83% of organisations have a hybrid-working model in place, up from 77% in 2022 (CIPD, May 2023). However, the impact of hybrid working on workplace culture continues, with organisations expressing concern about the negative impact of hybrid working on things such as organisational culture, communication and team collaboration.

Much has been debated on what organisations can do to minimise any negative impact. In this session, however, we will discuss what we can do as individuals to make hybrid working effective. We will explore how we contribute as individuals to effective team working and how the strengths of the relationships we hold with our colleagues can impact our careers, team work and performance in our jobs.

The session will be led by Jo Spreckley, Training and Development Manager at Marks & Clerk LLP. Jo has over 15 years’ experience of working in learning and development in Financial Services and Law and holds a Masters in Occupational Psychology.
