Creating a Culture for Remote Workers to Thrive Pt 1
Leading your remote staff to productive business outcomes is more than simply providing technology and communication tools. You’ll need to foster a sense of belonging and an environment of inclusion to optimize team results. The strong cultures that co-located teams enjoy will not happen organically for remote workers. Remote workers have a unique set of challenges that may include feelings of isolation, uncertainty and frustration. How does culture set them up for success?
The Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Community met with industry experts Amiel Harper, Founder & Principal of The Morpheus Consultancy and Delia Gutierrez McLaughlin, President and CEO of AzTech Innovation to discuss ways that leaders can help remote workers thrive. You’ll increase your understanding of what it means to be inclusive and why it’s important – not only to the organization but also to team members. We share practical, easy to implement advice. All you have to do is start applying it.
