How to fuel a positive culture for remote workers

Even under normal working conditions, cultivating a positive culture is both a challenge and a priority; remote work can add an additional layer of complexity because it’s more difficult for dispersed workforces to unite under one vision. Paired with proper strategy and open lines of communication, the right set of digital tools can fuel a positive culture that boosts employee satisfaction and encourages every user to reach peak performance.

The shift towards remote working has been in the works for years: according to Global Workplace Analytics, the number of employees who work from home has increased by 44% in the United States since 2015. 

With the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic representing a watershed moment and accelerating remote working at an unprecedented rate, enterprises are being asked to consider how to implement practices that ensure culture thrives outside of the office.

Many leaders are concerned that the culture of their workplace will take a hit as employees leave the office and go remote. These concerns are valid, particularly because even during the best of times, organizational culture proves elusive to many. Gartner reports that just 3 in 10 HR leaders believe their organization has the culture needed to drive future success.

With the right set of digital tools and a clear strategy, leaders can ensure that their unique culture transcends physical boundaries.

This guide will:

  • Discuss workplace culture and the profound role it can play in shaping enterprise-wide success
  • Pinpoint the top cultural challenges associated with remote work
  • Identify the digital tools leadership can take advantage of to fuel a connected culture
  • Spotlight best practices for cultivating a strong culture in a dispersed workforce

Who should read this guide?

This guide is suitable for anyone interested in preserving the culture of their workplace during times of disruption and transition, particularly colleagues from IT, Internal Communications and Human Resources. The content will be of particular interest to leadership teams who are overseeing the shift from office-based to remote working, either as an interim solution or an ongoing change.
