Hybrid Working: Challenges to Anticipate and How to Excel

As you head towards your internships or enter the corporate world after graduating, you will encounter a new way of working emerging from the hybrid work culture due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This workshop will focus on equipping you with skills and strategies that will help you to perform better and excel at a hybrid workplace. You will learn about leveraging the core elements of communication and collaboration to build your credibility in the workplace. Virtual, in-person and hybrid environments, each calls for specific strategies to maximise impact and be seen as an important contributor and member of the team, stemming from the challenges and opportunities presented by each of these workplace environments.

We will discuss real-life situations in the workplace, and the strategies you can apply to maximise your outcomes from the time you spend working remotely and in the physical office, including how to:

  • Communicate using language that strengthens your point of view
  • Maximise the time you spend in the office to collaborate and build connections
  • Collaborate effectively virtually when working remotely
  • Build credibility and add value to establish presence physically and virtually

Participation in this session will be driven through digital tools, small group discussions and some fun polls! Handouts will be shared with participants who attend and complete the survey.

Who should attend?

  • All students who are getting ready to embark on their first graduate job or internships
  • Students with prior work experience will also benefit from the program
