Managing Hybrid/Remote Work
Framework and Support for Employee Flexibility and Campus Vitality at NYU
Managing in NYU's Model of People and Places
The roles of the administrators and staff (Local 3882 and Local 153) you supervise are categorized in a framework based on their specific job function and the degree of in-person interaction. Complemented and underscored by flexibility, our three work models – Fully On-Site, Hybrid Eligible, and Mostly Remote – reflect how NYU New York, as a preeminent research and academic institution, is in large part a location-based organization, with many core services and activities offered or performed in-person. A flexible framework provides a vibrant and authentic campus experience for those who study, learn, teach, research, and work here.
Employees whose roles are classified as Fully On-Site are required to be on campus to perform job duties.
Employees whose roles are classified as Hybrid Eligible are on campus 60% to 80% of the time and have an assigned workspace. The number of days on campus per week may be at the discretion of the school, unit, or area lead based on the work, needs, and role.
Employees whose roles are classified as Mostly Remote maintain an occasional presence on campus; they are remote more than 60% of the time and have no dedicated desk. Supervisors consider and submit an individual role request, which requires approval by University Human Resources.
