Moving to a Hybrid Workforce
At George Brown, we are looking to continue to be a nimble, flexible and adaptive organization and will continue to support and enable high-performing teams. We will do so by encouraging a flexible and mobile workforce.
In the weeks and months ahead, we will work toward establishing the right balance between working from home and working on-campus to support the needs of our students and community. As a guiding principle, George Brown employees will work on-campus for 2 or 3 days per week for collaborative work. The rest of the week, where possible, they can work remotely. There may be more flexible options, as approved by managers depending on your role.
George Brown employees are looking for flexibility in the workplace and opportunities for continued remote access and digital collaboration. George Brown surveys have shown that 74 per cent of employees want to be able to work from home some of the time. Within that, a majority of survey respondents indicated that they wish to split their time between remote and on-campus. The desire to transition to a more flexible workplace is a popular trend across most sectors. A recent study published by Harvard Business Review shows that 81 per cent of office workers do not see themselves returning to the office five days per week, post-pandemic.
Finding a balance between focus, collaboration and connection
During the course of the pandemic, we’ve learned that while some work is best done in a focused space, like an enclosed workstation or remote workspace, other work is performed best in a shared physical setting.
