What are the challenges of managing a team who are sometimes present and sometimes not? How do we make sure hybrid working is inclusive? Is a hybrid meeting - that's effective for everyone - actually possible?

In this week's episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, speaker and writer Gary Cookson joins Ross G and Owen to share insights from his research.

We discuss:

  • what hybrid working is
  • the hybrid working challenges faced by employees, managers and organisations
  • strategies for developing networks within organisations
