Building and Maintaining Successful (and Productive) Teams in the Age of Coronavirus
October 14, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
October Economic Business Forum Webinar from SEDCOR
Speaker: Thomas Veeman, Co-Founder, Conversari Global; Leadership Development Manager, Wayfair
For those of us lucky enough to keep our jobs in the Covid economy of today, chances are that the way we do that work has been fundamentally altered by efforts to reduce transmission risk. One key area of impact is workplace engagement. Physical proximity plays an underappreciated role in keeping us motivated and connected to purpose and joy in our jobs. Workplace relationships are built on the basis of desk/assembly line proximity, and are nourished through shared lunch and break conversations. Organizational engagement initiatives such as pod outings, team building activities, and socials, all involve getting people together in shared physical space.
A critical question for organizational leaders across industries, therefore, becomes: “How can we motivate and engage our people in socially distanced or remote-work arrangements?” Join Thomas Veeman, engagement thought leader and leadership development manager for Wayfair, for an hour of best practices for engaging remote employees and socially distanced workers.
