Strengthening Company Culture Through The Pandemic + Beyond

OCT 28, 2021

Strengthening Company Culture Through The Pandemic + Beyond

Your company’s culture is your greatest asset to weather the perfect storm created by: a prolonged pandemic, the “great resignation,” and ongoing uncertainty around return to office timelines.

Inspire welcomes HR, organizational psychology, and workplace culture leaders to explore evaluating and strengthening company cultures following 19 months (and counting) of uncertainty.

Highlights from the panel include:

  • Start thinking of the CEO as the Chief Empathy Officer to keep company culture as a top priority.
  • Do not make decisions in a vacuum. Listen to team members and provide multiple communication platforms where they can share their input.
  • Employees now spend more time with their managers than with their coworkers. Managers are at the center of an employee’s relationships and need strategies and training to effectively engage their teams.
  • Flexibility remains critical, especially for caregivers. To reduce tension with coworkers, encourage open dialogue so caregivers don’t feel the need to “hide” their personal responsibilities. Then they will be able to show up more fully.
