How to Crush it at Your New Hybrid Job

If you’ve recently landed a new hybrid job, congratulations.

These types of jobs offer all kinds of advantages.

And there are plenty of reasons to be excited about this new opportunity.

With that being said, it’s still important to stay focused and to figure out how to crush it at your new job—even though that job is a hybrid job.

Some people look ahead to these types of jobs and believe that just because it’s a hybrid job, it’ll be easy.

However, that’s definitely not the case.

The truth of the matter is that it’s still going to require quite a bit of effort.

Let’s talk about how to make it happen.

1. Stay Focused

Just as with any other type of job, it’s crucial to stay focused on the task at hand and to make sure you get your to-do list done in a timely manner.

This isn’t to say that you should try to perform work that you’re not being paid for.

But it does mean that you want to continue the process of delivering great work for the company so that you’ll continue to be a valuable asset to the team.

2. Embrace A Sense Of ‘Connectedness’ With The Company, Even When Working From Home

When working from home, it can be easy to develop a sense of disconnectedness from not only the company, but also your fellow workers.

And this can definitely be problematic.

When you act as if you’re always connected to the company, both mentally and through your work, you’ll tend to get a better sense of work depth and project importance—and these things will help you to stay on track to continue to do a great job, even when you’re working remotely.

3. Stay Up-To-Date On News And Press Releases

Every company is going to publish news notifications and press releases to their staff.

This is true regardless of the type of work you’re doing.

It’ll also remain true even if you’re a member of their hybrid workforce.

Sometimes, these news releases are easy to overlook when you’re not directly involved with working in the office.

However, it’s still important to stay up to date on these things.

So make an intentional effort to check those memos whenever they come out, and to give them the attention they deserve.

4. Don’t Let Your Surroundings Dictate Your Productivity

Regardless of where you’re working, it’s important to maintain a consistent level of productivity.

Some workers struggle with this when they’re spending part of their time in the office, and part of their time at home.

For example, you may get more done at the office than you get done at home—or vice versa.

But it’s really important to try to keep your work output consistent.

This will show the company that your job really matters, which in turn will incentivize them to pay you even better.

5. Maintain Firm Boundaries, Regardless Of Where You’re Working

Of course, maintaining firm boundaries is another crucial element of this process.

Regardless of whether you’re working in the office or at home, you should always make sure that you’re being treated with the respect you deserve.

Never let people talk down to you.

Never let people take advantage of you or try to get you to work off the clock.

Remember, the standards you uphold for yourself, and the standards with which you treat other people, will tend to be the standards that you receive not only in your day-to-day life, but also in your professional life.

So don’t be afraid to ask for high standards—and to walk away if people won’t deliver.

6. Learn ‘Work Travel Lingo’

It pays to ‘learn the ropes’ if you plan to travel for work with your new hybrid job.

For example—even just figuring out what types of hotel rooms to rent can be a learning transition!

Hotel Engine puts it very eloquently on their travel experience blog:

“When planning an extended stay away from home (either for you or for your work team), you’re going to need to know the lingo. What do hoteliers mean when they use terms like “long-term stay” or “short-term rental”? Well, these are great questions.”

The more you learn about traveling for work, the better the experience is going to be.


Good luck with your new hybrid job.

These types of jobs are becoming more and more common.

And they can be a fantastic asset to an already balanced life.

Get out there and crush it.

You’ve got this!
