With businesses permanently moving to remote operations, the days of walking around the office seem to be gone forever. Indeed, the future looks bleak and uncertain to a majority of employees. Helping them adapt and focus on their job is essential. So, leaders must make smart adjustments to offer support to their teams. In this article at In The Black, Amanda Woodard defines how the workplace reset could cause employees’ anxiety and discomfort. It is your job as a leader to sharpen your focus on people management.
According to an organizational psychology consultant Susan Crawford, the global pandemic is an opportunity to identify the status quo. Take your chances to reinvent a more diverse and agile work culture. Extend trust in your staff and let them prioritize their job to deliver desired outcomes.
Founder of Team Focus International and author of “Cultural Insanity” Ross Judd believes rearranging work culture will help employees worry less. Let them know the real scenario of the post-pandemic phase. Help them understand where they are going to head next and what they would do. Use this time as an opportunity to redefine and reset your business and work strategies. You can also involve your staff in the workplace reset process. Educate and empower your remote workforce by sharing ideas with them. Maintain clear and open communication with them about the new work culture, strategy, and future.
A Place for Everyone
Your openness to new ideas helps redefine a fresh vision for your organization where people feel motivated to adopt a new way of working. Develop a flexible work culture that allows employees to cope with the pandemic after-effects. Let people decide whether they wish to resume work in the post-pandemic phase or continue working remotely.
