Making remote working work - keeping productivity and an eye on wellbeing webinar

In this webinar presented on Tuesday 24 March 2020 Jane shared experiences of creating an effective remote working culture; making remote working work, fast and sustainably. It covered practical frameworks for supporting different working and behaviour styles of individuals that need to be accommodated and gave inspirational stories, giving you take-aways that you can immediately use at an individual, team and organisational level. With enforced remote working now a reality, millions of people are adjusting to what it means when all colleagues, stakeholders and clients are working away from the workplace. It’s a cultural shift and one that The Culture Builders has supported their clients in Asia to navigate during the last three months.

They are facilitating leadership sessions to agree ways of working, equipping leaders and people managers to manage emotional reactions around uncertainty and providing practical tools and ‘how to’s.’ They also provide ongoing coaching.
