REBA Technical Training Guide: How to select benefits for a hybrid workforce

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.

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.

A shift to hybrid working models has been one of the most widespread changes driven by Covid-19.  Employers want to blend the advantages of remote working with time spent at business premises, to the benefit of both employers and employees.

This guide distils the priorities and policy considerations businesses face as they adopt hybrid working models, and how they are addressing those in practice.
