How HR can empower teaching and support staff with hybrid working
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to play out, education providers need to build organisational resilience, so they can adapt to change now and in future. As well as improving learning experiences for their students, this requires looking after their staff first and building up the organisation’s resilience from there. HR must ensure that all staff members have the right technology to do their best work.
In this blog, we explain what hybrid working in education looks like and address how HR departments at colleges and universities can support their staff by investing in a hybrid work environment, powered by Microsoft technology.
Support your support staff
Teachers may be the face of education, but behind the scenes, colleges and universities are run by their non-teaching support staff – without them, class wouldn’t happen at all.
When we discuss how schools can build the resilience to overcome current challenges and set themselves up for future success, it is these invaluable workers who we should turn to first.
Just as teachers need the tools to inspire students, support staff need the tools to communicate and collaborate. Otherwise, the crucial pillars of the organisation would crumble. Marketing, Sales, IT, Admissions, Events, Legal, Administration and HR – all these crucial teams need to be able to work productively in the new normal.
