University of Calgary: Hybrid Work Program 

Throughout 2022 the University of Calgary was operating in a transitory period whereby faculties and units were encouraged to evaluate various working arrangements.

During this hybrid work trial period, in-depth employee and leadership engagement was conducted that included a comprehensive survey (see results here) and numerous leader and employee focus groups.

The most common feedback received throughout the engagement was the request to develop a university-wide guideline to provide consistency, while also providing flexibility for faculties and units to take an approach that meets their unique needs.

The developed Hybrid Work Program Guideline (effective March 01, 2023) contains detailed program information including guiding principles, on campus presence, and enrolment process. It considers the university’s needs as a predominantly in-person learning and research institution, balanced with a changing workplace landscape that requires flexibility to retain and engage staff.
