Yes. Over the last two years, we learned a lot about our collective ability to be flexible and creative in where and how we work. We worked in new ways, in new environments and with new priorities as the world around us changed.
SFU’s Hybrid Work Arrangements (HWA) program, designed for leaders and staff across SFU, intends to bring structure and certainty to the university’s approach to hybrid work.
HWA involves employees who spend part of their time on campus (typically 50 per cent or more) and part of their time working remotely.
Given the variety of work across our campuses, a one-size-fits-all approach is not possible. Some roles may have the option of hybrid work while others may not. Learn more about the requirements and limitations for leaders in the HWA framework.
As more departments consider the potential for hybrid work in their units, SFU’s principle-based approach supports the university’s priorities, enables operational excellence and brings flexibility to the way we support our community.
The program will continue to be monitored over the coming months and adjustments may be made as needed. Read more about SFU’s HWA guiding principles here.
The Human Resources website has been updated to include dedicated pages for leaders with tools, checklists, samples and training materials to support implementation and team success.
