How to build a communications plan for a hybrid workplace

Over the past year, organizations have implemented a variety of models that support a combination of remote and on-site employees. But the next big disruption is a major challenge: how to successfully implement, optimize and communicate plans for a hybrid workplace.

Most importantly, employees are hungry to know what their organizations are planning. They crave communication.

However, according to McKinsey, 68% of companies haven’t communicated a clear vision for post-pandemic work, with serious negative consequences on employee productivity.

In contrast, those organizations that have effectively communicated a plan are seeing outsized benefits — their employees are five times more productive because they have the clarity and confidence that vision provides.

The imperative is clear – leadership, supported by their IC and HR teams, must find a way to communicate a solid plan for post-pandemic work or suffer serious productivity losses.

In this How-To Guide, we focus on:

  • 7 key points to consider when planning your return to the hybrid workplace comms plan
  • The essential building blocks for creating your return to the hybrid workplace comms plan
  • How an omnichannel communications solution can support your hybrid workplace comms plan
  • How Poppulo can support communications when returning to a hybrid workplace
