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.

We have found a few things working well for our teams:

- 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
