Team dynamics while the world is locked down
A happy and engaged team is vital when we’re all physically distanced. However, for many businesses keeping people together while working apart isn’t easy.
What are some simple things you can do to keep your people engaged and feeling like they’re part of something bigger?
Would love to hear what leaders around the world are deploying to engage and inspire remote teams while Corona Virus sweeps the globe.
We have found a few things working well for our teams:
- Regular stand ups
- Weekly retrospectives
- Focus on video conferencing over email/written communication
- On Fridays our happiness team post non-work related questions to get people sharing
- Mentoship programme
Each quarter during normal times our team members all meet up in person for 3-5 days of socialising and shared learning. We have had to move this online and it’s not the same but better than not doing it at all.
Hope this helps
