Corporate Team Building
Workplaces have changed!
In response to restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic many organizations and businesses have drastically changed their business model by having many or all of their staff working remotely from home on a full time /part-time basis. Many businesses have found that this type of business model works for them and do not anticipate a return to the “old model” of having all employees work in the same physical location.
While this new “remote” workplace model can be beneficial from a financial perspective many organizations and businesses report that their staff retention rates have dropped significantly, with many employees (both newly hired and long term employees) reporting feelings of isolation and experiencing a sense of being disconnected from fellow workers and management.
To add to those significant staffing concerns, organizations and businesses are experiencing many senior employees opting to retire rather than work remotely or return to the workplace, leaving younger, less experienced staff members having to take on those vacated leadership roles.
Many organizations and businesses have attempted to address staffing concerns by utilizing social networking technology. Virtual staff meetings allow staff to gather regularly in front of their computer screen to see and speak with each other. During these virtual meetings, communication for attendees is limited to what they see and hear on that virtual screen. Your staff and management are trying to build and maintain strong working relationships based on trust and mutual respect while only being able to look at each other on a virtual screen.
Now, more than ever before, members of your staff must have strong communication skills and an understanding of the importance of active listening.
