Welcome to season four!
For the news section of this first episode, we bring you up to date with what’s been happening over the past few months. We’ve got some exciting plans to share with you too.
Our big topic this week is all about remote working and the challenges of recreating ‘water cooler’ moments for colleagues away from offices. As some people start to return to their workplaces, we consider the cultural implications and the steps you can take to make sure remote workers keep up to date with the conversation.
Throughout the conversation we refer to the following books, articles and reports:
Remote Work by Chris Dyer and Kim Shepherd
LinkedIn post Jenni posted and mentioned
A recent post from Jenni that includes some crowd-sourced definitions of culture
We also share our tips and experience of handling hybrid working patterns and discuss the characteristics and behaviours that help people survive and thrive in remote locations. Finally, we explore whether the latest trends in improving employee experience, like providing yoga classes and ice cream, really work.
