Everyone who attended our Zoom HR Hub in July was asked to answer five multiple choice questions on hybrid working. The results provide an interesting snapshot of the challenges that employers, people managers and HR teams are facing. They may be helpful in terms of acting as forms of comparison, conversation starters and drivers of change. See what you make of the findings, set out below.
