Hybrid Working Policy
At Positivity Global Coaching, we believe in fostering a work environment that promotes positivity, well-being, and flexibility. This policy outlines our approach to hybrid working, which combines remote and in-office work to empower our team members to achieve their best while maintaining a work-life balance.
The purpose of this policy is to provide guidelines for employees and managers on how to effectively implement and manage hybrid working arrangements within our organization.
- Hybrid Working: A work arrangement that allows employees to split their work between the office and remote locations.
All full-time and part-time employees are eligible to request hybrid working arrangements, subject to managerial approval.
- Request Process
Employees who wish to request a hybrid working arrangement must submit a formal request to their manager, outlining the proposed schedule and reasons for the request. Managers will review these requests on a case-by-case basis, considering business needs and team dynamics.
- Approval Process
Managers will assess requests for hybrid working based on the following criteria:
- Impact on team collaboration and productivity
- Employee’s job responsibilities and suitability for remote work
- Availability and access to necessary tools and resources
- Consistency with the organization’s goals and objectives
- Trial Period
Approved hybrid working arrangements will be implemented on a trial basis for a specified duration, typically three months. During this period, both the employee and manager will assess its effectiveness.
Effective communication is essential in a hybrid work environment. Team members are encouraged to use digital tools and platforms for regular updates, meetings, and collaboration.
- Data Security
Employees working remotely must adhere to the organization’s data security policies and use secure networks and devices when accessing company information.
- Work Hours
Employees are expected to adhere to their agreed-upon work hours and be available during core business hours for meetings and collaboration, regardless of their location.
- Performance and Accountability
Performance will be measured based on agreed-upon key performance indicators (KPIs) and objectives. Managers will maintain open lines of communication with remote team members to ensure accountability.
Hybrid working allows for flexibility in where and when work is conducted, but employees are expected to be responsive and adaptable to the changing needs of the organization.
- Termination of Arrangement
Either the employee or the organization may terminate a hybrid working arrangement with reasonable notice, subject to business needs.
- Review and Modification
This policy will be reviewed periodically and updated as needed to ensure alignment with the organization’s goals and objectives.
Positivity Global Coaching is committed to creating a workplace that fosters well-being, positivity, and productivity. We believe that hybrid working can contribute to these goals and encourage our employees and managers to work together to make this arrangement successful.
