Ignite the Change Your Organization Craves

April 1, 2022 β€’ Misti Aaronson


Raise Your Hand If You're Going Hybrid

Our latest LinkedIn poll found that only 16% of companies are pushing their people back into the office – and more than half (58%) are taking a hybrid approach.

Going hybrid is not for the faint of heart. It requires the most planning to work well.

According to AT&T's recent future-of-work study:

  • 72% of businesses lack a detailed hybrid work strategy
  • 76% of companies don't have the right key performance indicators (KPIs) to support hybrid working models

For those going the hybrid route, you and your team must consider:

  1. PURPOSE: What matters most to your employees in terms of where and when they work? What expectations can you realistically meet?

  2. CLARITY: Is it an employee-led hybrid approach where they have a choice or is it a structured corporate-driven policy?

  3. CONNECTION: With a mix of in-person and remote teammates, how do you keep everyone feeling connected to the company vision, culture, and peers?

  4. INSIGHTS: How will you measure what's working and what's not?

Company Culture Change Starts Here

People are exhausted and leaders are seeing this show up in how their teams are engaging and performing.

As the current world of work continues to evolve, we all must move on from outdated strategies and ways of thinking.

What employers need more than ever is the ability to ignite behavior change.

Stories are the spark that can transform company culture, empower and excite teams, and ultimately, support business growth.

In this 15-minute on-demand webinar, you'll learn how you can use effective storytelling to move people to take action.
