I help senior managers meet the challenges of the Digital Age by adjusting to the current radical changes in work patterns"
Peter Thomson

Facing new challenges as we move from lockdown and home working to a partial return to the office?
Wisework can guide you through.

Now your employees are no longer forced to stay at home are you allowing them to return to their old workplace? Are you insisting they come back, encouraging them to return, allowing them to work part time from home or embracing remote working across the organisation? What do you say to the employee asking to stay working from home?

We are living through an unprecedented period of hybrid working. Some people are drifting back to the office others are nervous about returning. However well the workplace is prepared for social distancing it’s impossible to go back to the old ways of working.

Fortunately, Wisework consultants have been working for years with managers implementing flexible working. They understand how to get the best out of employees working with a mixture of working patterns. They have advised leaders across dozens of organisations on everything from the change in culture through to the details of HR policies.

Now you can have a quick, simple and cost effective access to that expertise. Take advantage of our hybrid working action plan. We analyse your current situation and report back on the practical steps you need to take in the current situation.

Here are some of the benefits of working flexibly with support from WiseWork :

There are many more reasons in our “A to Z guide to Why Wisework?”.

The WiseWork approach is to create a working culture where people are rewarded for their contribution and trusted to manage their own work patterns. It differs from other flexible working schemes by building on some fundamental principles about work design. These are used by experienced consultants to help you create an efficient and effective workforce, contributing to your business success.
