Employee engagement was hit hard by the disruptions to work and continues to be a top priority for leaders, who face additional challenges in a remote setting where it’s harder to identify the cracks. A sustained approach to flexibility is needed, coupled with new work habits that move away from never-ending video calls and introduce an element of balance. Employers must contend with competing preferences and demands when making decisions about ways of working – how can you cater to everyone’s needs, while maintaining effective collaboration and being inclusive regardless of physical presence?
Rather than pushing people to perform, the conversation needs to shift to how you can pull them to be their best.
