Confronting the Remote Employee Engagement Challenge

Confronting the Remote Employee Engagement Challenge | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Statistics show that the sudden need for workers to go remote could take a toll on employee engagement, which was already in a concerning state.
Barry Deutschs insight:

This article made me sad to read given the high percentage of people working from home right now. Here's the quote that got to me:

 

remote workers felt shunned and left out. Results showed that the remote cohort was more likely to feel unrepresented, and ganged up against by colleagues.

 

What are you doing to prevent your employees from feeling shunned and left out, isolated, ignored, cast off, not cared for?

 

In working through the webinar I've been conducting for Vistage Groups and members over the last few weeks, many CEOs have admitted to not communicating enough, not providing enough specific direction on expectations, and not embedding a sense of caring, compassion, and empathy into their culture.

 

Let's fix this right now! The steps are simple, and the technology exists to facilitate a more effective remote work culture.

Working From Home During Covid-19

Working From Home During Covid-19 | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
     As the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has escalated, businesses are trying to be proactive with their employee and customers’ hea...
Barry Deutschs insight:

Here are some good tips for employees about how to work at home - especially for those for which this is a new experience. I'm finding most of my clients are NOT providing coaching and resources to help their employees be more effective as a remote worker. The assumption is just work the same as you did in the office - nothing could be further from the truth. Your employees desperately crave your guidance, coaching , and support in how to be productive and successful while working from home.

The keys to managing the business curve of COVID-19

The keys to managing the business curve of COVID-19 | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
To manage the business curve of COVID-19, start by understanding the three phases of this crisis: Panic and Disruption, Fear and Isolation, and Recovery and the New Normal.
Barry Deutschs insight:

Interesting article laying out 3 phases your employees are going to experience during the Corona Virus Crisis. Are we still in the phase of panic and disruption? Or have we moved yet to Fear and Isolation?

 

My perception of speaking with almost 500 Vistage CEOs in my webinars on Managing Remotely in a Crisis over the past 3 weeks is that most companies are way behind the 8 ball in moving forward. There is panic, desperation, confusion, and uncertainity. Many CEOs are paralyzed by what is happening and have not yet laid out a plan to their workforce for the next 3-6 months.

 

How do we use these phases to engage our employees, and quickly return to an effective and productive organization that continues to build and strengthen their culture?

Barry Deutschs insight:

As simplistic as it might seem on the surface, helping your team members to understand the differences between running online virtual meetings is radically from physically being around the table.

 

Are you coaching and preparing your team members to be very successful in organizing and running online virtual meetings for their team, interdisciplinary teams, and customer teams?

 

This is one of the areas we explore in the workshop/webinar I am doing for Vistage Groups and Members on "Managing Remotely in a Crisis."
