If there’s anything we can say with certainty after the last 12 months, it’s that work as we knew it has changed (and if it hasn’t changed all that much for you, it most certainly will!). If we want our teams to thrive in an evolving environment, that means our management approaches have to change with it.
Many businesses operated under modified conditions in 2020, and some of these positive changes may become permanent, even after we resume some semblance of pre-pandemic life. The most obvious change is the widespread movement towards more flexible, remote, and hybrid work. Global studies show that 7 in 10 employees say their job satisfaction and work-life balance have improved since the shift to remote work, but that doesn’t mean it comes without challenges. Working in physically distanced workspaces means that our team members are automatically less visible and ad-hoc collaboration and opportunities to connect socially occur less frequently.
If we don’t proactively change how to manage and support this hybrid workforce, our employees will be left feeling disconnected and disengaged. Click here to discover 6 changes to put in place to better manage hybrid employees.
