A recent trend I’ve observed among clients, in navigating the uncharted waters of recent workplace circumstances (the economy, COVID, a return to office) is a strong focus on reconnecting teams.
One HR VP said “The battle to win the retention of talent is won by creating connections.”
As many shift to hybrid or full-time in the office, many team members are meeting each other in-person for the first time.
Creating trust through shared experiences such as a lunches, training, and informal get-togethers helps foster work connections. We know that when people have work friendships/connections it improves performance and fosters an emotional engagement with the organization.
My clients are investing in and developing their people more than ever whileto creatinge real connections, feelings of belonging and it is Is resulting in higher levels of retention and engagement.
