Six Tips for Etiquette + Protocols in the Hybrid Workplace

As offices start to bring back employees, many companies are allowing greater flexibility for employees to choose where and how they work. To make the hybrid workplace more effective, there should be clear, communicated etiquette and protocols to ensure equity, engagement, and a sense of belonging.

Below are six etiquette and protocols tips for the Hybrid Workplace!

Schedule Communication – Establish a system for communicating who will be attending in-person vs. remote to help plan for collaboration.

Introductions – Proper introductions should be made to familiarize everyone in the meeting, including remote participants with video.

Audio Quality – Make sure everyone can hear and be heard clearly, with marked microphones and avoiding background noise.

Video View – Assign an in-person participant to monitor remote viewing to ensure the camera is in the right place and content is visible.

Engagement Protocols – Pause regularly to ask remote participants for input, with protocols based on group size and type of work.

Next Steps – End each collaboration session with clearly stated and visible next steps to avoid missing important wrap-up conversations.
