With the latest pandemic surge in cases, many companies find themselves shifting their in-person employees back to working remotely, again. A recent survey indicated that remote employees miss certain aspects of being physically present in the office, including small talk and interacting with their colleagues, in-person collaboration on a team, and the separation between work and home. Company culture will continue to play a key role in keeping their employees happy and healthy. Surprisingly, a strong, healthy company culture matters a lot to employees, as much as or even more than pay.
Despite advances in public health measures and teleworking, the pandemic continues to disrupt work and people’s daily lives. For many workers who had finally returned to the office, the latest pandemic surge caused many of them to return to working remotely. In January 2022, the percentage of remote workers rose to 15.4%, an increase from about 11% in December 2021. Nearly 9 million people were not able to work due to being sick or caring for someone who was ill.
Companies once again found themselves shifting to remote work. Working remotely helps staff, their peers, and their families stay healthy and prevent spread of the contagion, especially with the increase of breakthrough cases. Additionally, staff who are working remotely have had to care for their sick loved ones as well as maintain their productivity—no easy task.
Many companies have adjusted to operating remotely, but the recent surge has impacted the morale of staff, limited resources, and adjusted client expectations. In order to promote company culture, companies will need to consider providing resources to support health (such as giving testing kits to each employee), provide self-care resources, and implement one-on-one well-being check-ins with each employee.
Companies who have made the shift to remote workers and in-person (“hybrid”) or 100% teleworking employees can always work on improving company culture, especially if they recently made the shift to remote due to the pandemic. Here are some ideas to get started.
