When it comes to how successful a company is managing their hybrid working, there is a lot of evidence that proves that what an employee thinks may not necessarily correlate with what senior management thinks.

Here are 10 points that employees use to help them make their judgements.
Poor management and leadership: Managers and leaders who lack soft skills can create a negative work environment for employees.
Lack of mental health support: If a company does not have a genuine mental health first approach, it can be detrimental to employees' well-being. This goes way beyond a policy and an MHFA.
Culture not as good as it was: If the company culture has changed for the worse, employees may feel less connected to the company and more inclined to leave.
Low trust: Lack of trust in line management can lead to low morale and employee dissatisfaction.
Lack of work-life balance: Some employees may still find it difficult to separate their work and personal lives when working from home, which can lead to burnout and a desire to leave the company.
Isolation and lack of social interaction: Remote work can lead to feelings of isolation and disconnection from colleagues, which can affect an employee's mental and emotional well-being.
Poor communication and collaboration: Without the face-to-face interaction that comes with in-person work, it can be more difficult for employees to communicate and collaborate effectively with their colleagues.
Limited opportunities for professional development: Remote work may limit an employee's access to training and professional development opportunities.
Limited opportunities for career advancement: Remote work can limit an employee's ability to network and build relationships within the company, which can impact their ability to advance their careers.
Lack of flexibility: Some employees may feel that their company is not flexible enough to accommodate their needs and preferences, which can lead to dissatisfaction and a desire to leave.
