Acas publishes advice on hybrid working

Acas has published new advice aimed at helping employers consider whether hybrid working could be an option for their workplace and how to fairly introduce it.

Hybrid working is a type of flexible working where staff split their time between working remotely and in their employer’s workplace.

The advice includes tips for employers on how to:

  • Consult widely with staff to discuss practical considerations around introducing it.
  • Consider whether it would work for certain roles and is suitable for their organisation.
  • Create a hybrid working policy.
  • Handle staff requests for hybrid working.

The new advice has been developed in consultation with Acas Council and the government Flexible Working Taskforce, a partnership across business, unions, government departments and other groups to share best practice. The Taskforce is co-chaired by officials at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the CIPD.

The following guidance is available:
