When employers develop their ideal hybrid workplace and return-to-work plan, it may be necessary to shift the organizational culture accordingly. The following are just a few essential elements that should be incorporated in your organizational culture if they’re not already.
Accountability — The pandemic has exposed the need for understanding and empathy in hybrid workplaces as many people live, work and handle schooling and caregiving responsibilities from their homes. But it’s equally important for employers to continue encouraging a culture of accountability. Accountability reminds employees that their work matters and individual work is crucial to team and overall company success.
Communication — In a dispersed workplace, employers need to create a plan for how communication will be supported and facilitated. Digital tools, such as company intranets and business communication platforms like Slack or Teams, can help both onsite and remote employees feel involved and able to contribute no matter their location or local time.
Reaching a digitally dispersed workforce requires the use of unique communication strategies. Check out our on-demand webinar to discover how you can cut through the clutter and connect with your hybrid workforce.
Recognition — Hybrid or not, a workplace should prioritize recognition to demonstrate an appreciation for employees and their work. Some employers offer an online destination for employees to receive and submit values-based recognition.
