Life at work post lockdown has been nothing short of a whirlwind of change. Transitioning to new hybrid work arrangements, learning how to readapt to the workplace and becoming accustomed to balancing both work and personal responsibilities while returning to the office full time, has placed both psychological and emotional demands on employees everywhere. Although organisations across the world have attempted to help ease the transition back to the office for their employees, these attempts are limited and usually adopt a “one size fits all” approach. Instead of relying solely on the support from organisations, employees must draw on their own psychological strengths to ensure a smooth transition to the new hybrid world of work and to manoeuvre the change.
