Why Hybrid Workplaces Can Be an Ideal Fit for Working Parents

  • If management sets clear guidelines of what is expected from workers in order to be promoted (e.g., attending company-wide events, direct client contact, in-person team meetings), it will help to reduce FOMO for mostly remote workers and prevent the creation of two “classes” of employees — those who are more visible due to their presence in the office and those who are mostly remote and less likely to be noticed for the promotion.
  • If management makes all meetings available both in-person and via video conferencing, everyone will have a fair(er) shot at being heard.
  • Employees must set clear boundaries in terms of work time and personal time. If organizations want to retain talent, they’ll have to listen and actually follow through with their promises of taking care of their employees well being.
