Johns Hopkins University is committed to preserving and nurturing essential in-person experiences while maintaining flexibility through hybrid work arrangements. Its long-term flexible workplace plan, effective for staff on Feb. 1, has four clearly defined work modalities:

  • In-person: On-site five days a week (preferred modality)
  • Hybrid: On-site three or four days a week (preferred modality)
  • Modified hybrid: On-site one or two days a week
  • Remote: Not (or rarely/not regularly) on-site

Resources have been created to support employees and managers who are part of a hybrid team, including:
