Working Together Charters - Actions speak louder than words

Patrick Hackett

I firmly believe that our PS hybrid working pilot has been a huge step forward. When we launched this back in June 2021, I said it was an experiment, that we’d be discovering the possibilities and pitfalls as we went along.  

There is much more for us to know and understand but we have listened to your feedback, refined our approach, and as of 1 September 2022, PS hybrid working has moved from pilot phase to business as usual.

In other words, PS hybrid working is very much here to stay.  

The challenge now will be getting the balance right between what works for our University and our community of students, staff and stakeholders; what works for teams; and what works for individuals.
