The move towards hybrid teaching and research has provided an opportunity for us to think creatively about how our work can be delivered differently in ways which benefit our community and make effective use of our physical and digital assets. The most likely future state for the University will be a combination of staff working remotely and working on campus.  

Although some roles or tasks can only be done on campus, many roles can be done remotely as long as we have the technology and support mechanisms in place to enable them. We know from the Autumn 2020 staff Pulse survey that around 90% of staff said they would prefer to continue to work remotely at least some of the time, but we must consider staff wellbeing and fairness as we move out of our emergency pandemic response into longer term, sustainable ways of working. We also recognise that some staff may prefer to work from campus even if their role can be delivered remotely.

To ensure consistency across individual and team roles irrespective of where they are located, this project will create and test a number of models for off-campus and on-campus working. We will produce a framework to enable managers to make decisions for their teams and individuals within them with access to best practice  guidance, digital tools and support.
