Four Reasons Why Teams Aren't Connecting
U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy has put out a call to action for companies to make fostering social connections a strategic priority. As he stated in a past interview, “A more connected workforce is more likely to enjoy greater fulfillment and engagement while being more protected against illness, disability, and burnout.”
Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:
Q: Rate your productivity working at home vs. at the office?
- Most productive at home - 60%
- Most productive at the office - 22%
- No difference - 18%
Overwhelmingly people feel more productive working from home. Not surprising, we at Alaant feel most productive at home too! However, working at home is not best for everyone, so how can employers ebb and flow to get the most out of people’s productivity? Number 1 recommendation- talk to your employees- learn what works for them and adapt so that your business can continue to thrive while getting the best productivity out of your team. The Alaant experts work with employers across all industries, we help them develop best practices that work for them- can we help you? Call us today!
