The way of working has moved on for good since the pandemic forced most office based employees into working from home. As the dust settles and we learn to work in new ways, a hybrid approach has emerged. Working partly from the office, partly from home or other locations brings new challenges for managers and business leaders. New and improved leadership skills are necessary to manage a distributed workforce.
Working with world leading work psychology skills and experience of Dr Craig Knight PhD MSc HCPC CPsychol BSCAH, based on 100 year's of science, we have developed The Knight Index - it is an innovation in well-being and performance assessment that put the levers of corporate well-being and performance directly into management hands.
Companies can clearly see what is going right and wrong on an organizational, departmental, team and even individual basis.
How ready are you to manage a Hybrid Team?
