Employees have had a rough ride this year. The COVID-19 crisis has turned their world upside down, both at work and at home. Where we work, the way we work, even if we work, have all changed dramatically.
Diverse workplaces are successful ones. They have increased employee satisfaction, stronger customer orientation, recruit the best talent and have improved decision-making.
A return to regular work is imminent for many employees across the world, as restrictions in place as part of the coronavirus response are reviewed.
Humans are social animals. Take away our ability to readily engage with others and we feel disconnected and trapped.
For many of us, the current working environment due to COVID-19 can feel a little bit like a prison. Our bubbles are our cells.
Successfully working from home requires a major mindset shift for employees.
It’s a mode of work entirely different from what most are used to. And that unfamiliarity can create an uncertainty that inhibits productivity.
A global crisis like COVID-19 puts a lot of focus on the importance of effective business communication.
It’s critical that employees understand the company approach to issues around COVID-19, the resolution strategy and the ongoing impact mitigation.
The COVID-19 coronavirus has led more employees working from home than ever before.
But successfully working remotely requires as much a shift of mindset for managers as it does for employees.
The coronavirus has caused many businesses to trial remote working during this global health pandemic. How this is handled in the next few months could change the future of work forever.
First impressions matter. Whether on a first date, meeting people or starting a new job, a bad first impression is hard to recover from.
