New Resource: Hybrid and Remote Work Arrangements Survey Results

The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically changed how Canadians work, and the post-secondary sector is no exception as it quickly adapted to remote work arrangements in order to keep their workforce healthy, safe and productive.

Institutions are now exploring opportunities resulting from the pandemic in terms of whether flexible work arrangements could be adopted and to what extent in the post-pandemic environment.

CAUBO has undertaken a project to support members as they develop plans and policies for their post-pandemic workplace. A toolkit of resources will be made available for members, which includes:

  • A report highlighting the results of the December 2021 Hybrid Work Arrangements Survey.
  • A report providing additional insight on member plans and practices, collected through follow-up interviews with survey respondents.
  • A sample of institutional tools and resources developed by members (such as samples of applicable principles, policies/frameworks, guidelines, assessment tools, request forms, remote work agreements and conversation or implementation guides).
  • Guidance regarding relevant taxation, labour laws and cybersecurity considerations.

The survey report is now available for members and provides an overview of members’ plans and considerations regarding remote or hybrid work arrangements for staff. 

Stay tuned for more resources! The full toolkit will be available in late spring 2022.
