Introduction

The concept of the office has evolved dramatically over the past year and a half. From what was initially a necessity, flexible working is looking to be far more integrated in many people's lives; what was the preserve of the few has suddenly become more mainstream and a high likelihood for many office workers.

But hybrid working is very new for many people; while millions of office workers have made the adjustment under emergency measures, how do they adapt for the long-term.  

Certain things that people took for granted, such as modelling for junior members of staff, spontaneity and idea generation among office colleagues are now less available with remote working. How does an adviser build that in if only half the office is present at any one time?

This guide aims to look at some of these questions, and is worth 60 minutes' CPD.
