The 3 biggest challenges of hybrid work – voices from the personalist.at community
In the course of an Leadership Horizon Conference competition, some members of the personalist.at community asked themselves the following question – What are my 3 biggest challenges when it comes to leading an organization in the new age of hybrid work?
A common concern among participants seems to be employee retention – spending so much time in the home office significantly increases the distance between the company and its employees.
One participant commented:
More home office cannot work at the expense of team spirit and identification. How do we still manage to maintain the bond with the company & the players or allow it to develop?
Re-establish the corporate culture
In addition, it is now necessary to fully re-establish the corporate culture that was previously destructed. There are several factors (e.g. generational diversity) and different needs (e.g. different working days) that now have to find a harmony.
What additionally puts obstacles in the way of hybrid company development is the complicated organization. The onboarding process clearly needs a change here, because new employees now hardly find a connection without the personal exchange. We all need to learn from and with the situation.
