What is a hybrid worker?

A hybrid worker splits their working time between the workplace and a remote location. This could be the worker's home or another location.

This may be within the context of a hybrid working model that applies to the whole workforce or sections within it. An individual could also be known as a hybrid worker where they have made a flexible working request to work remotely for part of the time.

There is no single model for hybrid working. An employer that implements a hybrid working policy will need to define its approach. For example, it could set out a minimum number of days on which employees must attend the workplace, or it could give employees more flexibility to choose their working pattern, within the needs of the business.
