Communication And Collaboration Are Key But Connection Is King

Company culture is the most vulnerable factor in the new work setting. Six components contribute to cultivating great work culture and three out of them are at risk while employees are working remotely.
The 3Ps: place, practices, and people are every company’s challenge today. Leaders must rethink ways to:
• Maintain the office’s rituals and create a sense of belonging while
employees are not under the same roof anymore
• Put the company’s vision, mission, and values into practice
• Integrate and align employees’ different cultures with that of the
company
• Keep employees engaged and connected to maintain their health and
wellbeing

Wellness And Productivity In The Remote Workspace

Companies invest hundreds of hours and millions of dollars to make office environments not just OSHA compliant, but pleasant and productive places to work. Now, though, the great shift to remote work means the normally well-stocked snack pantries are bare, and the on-site gyms, meditation rooms, and ergonomic workstations are standing empty.

With 74% of executives now expecting workers to stay remote even after the pandemic ends, it’s time to ask: how can employers continue to use workspaces to differentiate themselves, engage, and ensure employee well-being? Join us to learn more about how the remote workspace is the key to employee wellness.
