Optimizing Hybrid Work Structure for Success

The Best Way to Structure Hybrid Work

Newport proposes a hybrid work model where employees have synchronized schedules, with designated at-home and in-office days. On at-home days, there should be no meetings or email, allowing for deep, focused work without distractions.

He believes that for remote work to be successful, it needs to be structured differently than in-person work. Jobs should be more clearly defined, with less collaboration and fewer things to work on at once. Newport points to software developers as an example of a knowledge sector that has successfully implemented remote work by structuring jobs around agile workload management systems.

Huberman agrees that limiting email, text, and social media during at-home work days can help maximize productivity. He has personally experienced the benefits of a hybrid work model, even before the pandemic.
