Employees all over the world, from Hong Kong to Brazil, were suddenly working from home because of Corona. Which (un)written rules about (team)work still apply? What needs to change in the work culture in order to continue to perform and stay healthy at the same time?
How do you make sure employees remain energized and that the organization continues to perform? Of course, this requires new working arrangements, but also a new view on working and working together. The work culture largely consists of unwritten rules. But how do you change the view of work if the situation changes continuously per country or even per employee? And how do you deal with cultural differences?
Dialogue sessions on organizational, team and individual level
With our customer, we pinpointed 5 themes employees struggled with: social isolation, work / life balance, dealing with work pressure, dealing with change and uncertainty and healthy work habits. We facilitated organization wide panel discussions, team dialogue sessions and in-depth workshops on these themes to determine new (un)written rules about online collaboration. We gave employees the opportunity to reflect personally with a coach. Our client indicated that employees felt supported by this approach to discuss the method of online collaboration. Managers felt supported during an exciting period and were also able to work with their teams with the ideas that were exchanged on the themes.
