Hybrid work: how to find balance

Maybe you have a new role in a new company. Or just the rules have changed in your usual job. The fact is that now, instead of working from the office, you have the option of hybrid work. Good for you! But what does it mean? We give you some tips so you can get the most out of it.

Organize office days to have meetings

Working from home has many benefits, and one of them is that you can focus more on the tasks. You have fewer distractions, and fewer people around. Therefore, try to organize yourself to have more meetings when you are in person at the office. In this way, you will avoid spending too much time in online meetings. You will make better use of your time and will complete tasks while you’re at home. 

Teambuilding

Being close and in contact with your colleagues in the office will allow you to get to know them better. Not only professionally, but also personally. And that is very important for the company. And for you! Many relationships have been forged remotely due to the pandemic, but you will see how suddenly, your opinion might change when dealing face-to-face. 

And then there is the opportunity to socialize and make friends. After all, you share many hours together with your colleagues. You may find that you have a lot more in common with them than you thought. 

A nice home office

It is important that now that you are going to hybrid work, you adapt a space in your house and dedicate it to work. It doesn’t have to be a lot of space, but you have to be comfortable. Think that, after all, you are going to spend many hours there. And many people from all over the world are going to see it. Get organized and decorate this space so it’s clean and comfortable. And avoid distractions.

Communicate with your team

Communication is key for hybrid work. Your colleagues need to know when you’re going to work from home, and when you’re going to work from the office. In this way, you will be able to meet people and don’t miss opportunities. Therefore, a tip is to share calendars. And also use collaboration tools, which by the way, have proliferated in these times of pandemic. Take advantage of all the tools you have available.

Separate work and free time

One of the problems that arose as a result of the pandemic in 2020 was that the working hours became infinite. And when working from home, the employees were not able to establish limits, so what used to be an 8-hour working day, became a nightmare. For this reason (and for your mental health’s sake), it is important to establish limits between your working hours and your ‘free time’. 

Take the opportunity to rest, or dedicate time to hobbies, your well-being or your family. You will avoid the dreaded burnout.

Meeting planning

You will also have to travel and have work meetings in other countries and cities. You will be able to save costs, time, and if you have the right tools, everything will go much better.
