For employees, flexibility ranks as one of the most important factors of work today, second only to salary.

Hybrid work is appealing for a number of reasons; namely, it reduces the stress of long commutes and allows employees to strike a greater work-life balance. Beyond these personal benefits, hybrid also benefits workplace diversity. What’s more, according to Stanford research, these flexible work arrangements don’t typically affect employees’ productivity.

Still, for many employers, the concept is new and unfamiliar, and some managers simply don’t feel that their employees are as productive when working from home. So, if you want to be hybrid but your boss wants you in the office, how can you broach the topic and make a compelling case for yourself?

Head to the link in our bio for five strategies that can help you approach the conversation with grace and tact.

  1. It’s 2024. If the idea of remote work is “new and unfamiliar” to an employer they’re a fossil. Or they’re being willfully obtuse. This is the kind of employer everyone should avoid. This will be one of many signs that you’ll be underpaid and underappreciated.

  2. A topic that should very much be kept alive as many organisations are asking for more time in office! Great advice given here….

  3. If your boss wants you in the office, it’s likely a control issue. If your boss is controlling, a conversion likely won’t change anything, or they will bug the f out of you while you work from home.
