One consequence of the 2020 pandemic is the emergence of a hybrid workplace that blends working at the physical workplace with working from home. The Fair Work Commission recently found that 70% of employers they surveyed would allow their employees to work from home at least some of the time.

But the new hybrid workplace is creating new challenges for employers. This seminar will overview these challenges and describe how one organisation is solving them.

Deborah Beltrame-Ross, Senior Organisational Development Manager, Beyond Bank will discuss how managers can set up effective performance management arrangements with their employees, using the case study of Beyond Bank’s new training program that develops line managers’ skills in discussing performance expectations with employees working from home.

Sarah McCann-Bartlett, CEO of the Australian Human Resource Institute (AHRI), will outline some of the key issues and actions that employers and HR should consider in the hybrid workplace, including the expanding role of the employer, actively managing the change, the necessity of a culture reset and the reskilling rush.

Gerry Treuren, Centre for Workplace Excellence at UniSA, will put working from home into a historical context, and some of the current problems of implementation.
