In this era of remote work, have you ever felt like your team is becoming disconnected from the company culture?
You’re not the only one.
The challenge of keeping remote workers connected to our shared goals and values is one that many employers are struggling with.
Recent data paints a concerning picture: A growing chasm between remote workers and their sense of purpose within the company. This disconnect can lead to a transactional, ‘gig-like’ relationship, threatening the very loyalty that holds our teams together.
But there’s no need for despair. Enter Microsoft Teams, a beacon of hope in these challenging times. Why Microsoft Teams, you might ask? It’s an indispensable tool for remote work, much like a compass for a ship at sea.
Microsoft Teams ensures smooth sailing for your day-to-day operations. From quick catch-ups to major meetings, Teams serves as your central communication hub.
There’s also Viva Engage. Have you tried it? It’s Microsoft’s enterprise social network, formerly known as Yammer. This tool is the perfect complement to Teams, designed specifically to bolster employee engagement.
According to a recent study, nearly half (48%) of companies are already using enterprise social apps, while 26% are utilising team-building apps.
These digital platforms build communities across roles, departments, and even countries, allowing remote workers to feel part of the larger whole.
But let’s not forget that technology alone isn’t the solution. It’s how we use these tools that truly matters. And of course, encouraging face-to-face conversation where possible is also a big help.
How do you make sure your remote workers remain engaged?
