Leading through the pandemic

We’re all in it together. In less than a month, coronavirus has reduced us all to a social connection of just 2 people. Businesses are now forcefully working through the complex task transitioning each staff member into a fully functioning remote office!

The transition to a remote workforce raises many obstacles. Previously deemed as non-essential for many staff, remote work has rapidly become both essential and immediate for everyone. With the ability to simply chat at your desk or the  tea room now banished, effective communication is paramount to sustainable management, continuity, team engagement and your teams mental health.

Leaders regularly receive criticism for communications. We’ve relied on email for more than 25 years now, and this has remained the go-to method of business communications. It’s incredible that 74% of all business communications is still achieved by email, texting & phone calls.

As the workplace evolves, we now see over 30% of workplaces adopting non tradition socially based communications methods. Further, 37% of workers surveyed admitted to using Facebook and other social platforms whilst at work. The desire to be socially connected is far beyond the capability of the poor old email. It’s a selfie with 5 words versus an essay worth of typing. You already know who the winner is!
