Session: From forced remote to hybrid connection: creating a company culture that works independent of the office
After over a year of working from home, forcing everyone back into the office seems unrealistic. Not allowing anyone to return won't work either. It's time to actively steer your company culture into a position where you can accommodate both preferences. It is possible to create a sense of belonging and connection independent where the office is a perk instead of a necessity. It won't happen by accident though. If you are committed to make a new hybrid reality work for your team or your company, now is the time to start steering the narrative into the right direction.
- A hybrid company culture requires a remote-by-default mindest (and what that needs).
- How to mitigate conference call fatigue and meeting overload.
- How to structure the non-work conversations so you don't accidentally forget people.
- How to leverage and integrate the diversity of your team in creating a hybrid company culture.
