Support virtual work with culture and tech.
Supporting a modern workforce starts with a culture of trust and accountability, and workplace tech that reflects how individuals want to work.
“Communicate, communicate, communicate. By email, video, slack. Be transparent—don’t try to spin things. Employees want authenticity and the truth.”
- Laura Butler, SVP of people and culture
The work universe just pivoted from physical work to digital work, seemingly overnight. The Eudaimonia Machine can help us master this unprecedented shift to virtual work.
SVP of people and culture Laura Butler explains why culture is the heart of preparedness that helps leaders avoid risk, capture opportunity, and exceed modern workforce expectations.
In a world where virtual work is a new norm, leading with transparency can help you create a culture of trust, collaboration, and innovation (and avoid a culture where everyone looks over their shoulder and refuses to try new things).
Work today is a digital experience. HR leaders need to ask themselves this: is my organisation harnessing technology in a way that empowers people to do their best work, or is our tech stack putting additional barriers in their way?
