Work Schedule That Makes Hybrid Model Successful

What is a Hybrid Work Schedule?

Different Types of hybrid Remote Work Schedules

1. Cohort Schedules

Pros

  • Each employee gets access to in-house technology and can collaborate with the team on their day.
  • Individual managers can be assigned for individual days
  • Time saved because the schedule is created once

Cons

  • Sometimes the off days can cause slack in work
  • All the employees are not able to collaborate.

2. Staggered Schedule

Pros

  • The employers are clear about who would be in the office that day, making it easier to manage.
  • Different managers can be assigned for different shift
  • This method provides the increased chances of access to the workplace to all employees

Cons

  • Allocated time slots may not be suitable for all employees; thus, flexibility is low.
  • The collaboration level is also moderate because the teams are not always working together.

3. Custom Schedule

Pros

  • Managers can call the entire team simultaneously to improve collaboration; thus, teamwork is improved.
  • Each team and team member has equal access to the workplace amenities and can get a spot in the office.

Cons

  • Employees won’t know what days their team will be called, so there is always confusion.
  • Sometimes managers have a hard time finding the free spot on their desired day.
  • Requires a lot of time in creating and managing the schedule every week

4. Employee’s Scheduling

Pros

  • High flexibility for the employees
  • Employees who need to work together on a particular project can collaborate.
  • Employees can also decide on fixed days to work

Cons

  • There isn’t always a guarantee whether you would find your favorite spot
  • Sometimes the spots could get full, too, and an employee may not find a free workstation at all
  • The time investment on booking and finding a place is also moderate
