Many organisations are shifting to more agile, hybrid and flexible working models, driven by Covid-19, employee needs and business priorities.

Realising the full potential of hybrid working requires a new approach to reward and benefits, from ensuring fairness between hybrid and non-hybrid roles, to introducing benefits that will appeal to employees with more flexible lifestyles.

This guide from REBA, together with YuLife,  is based on conversations with senior reward and benefits directors.  As practitioners navigate significant change, here is practical guidance and shared experiences that will support the reward and employee benefits community.
