Following the initial launch of hybrid working last year, our HR team has now shared its Hybrid Working Guidance.
The aim of this guidance is to set out the key elements of hybrid working to ensure that LJMU supports everyone to stay connected, work effectively and deliver the best possible student experience.
Local team charters
For those staff whose roles enable them to engage in hybrid working there can be significant benefits, however it is also important that the university maintains a vibrant, active campus and that teams continue to have the opportunity to collaborate.
To be most effective, hybrid working arrangements should consider the specific nature of the team and role requirements, which is why it is important that arrangements continue to be made at a local level through local team charters.
We also recognise that hybrid working does not apply to all roles across the institution and that some colleagues prefer to work on campus for all of their working week.
The guidance is also clear that no one is required to work from home.
Team anchor days
The new guidance recognises the importance of effective team working and communications and team anchor days have now been included in the guidance. Teams have found that all being on campus at the same time is a good way to ensure that everyone meets regularly, connects and collaborates.
Each department has been asked to review and update their local team charters based on the new guidance and share with their teams. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your line manager or HR business Partner.
