The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted organizations of all sizes from every sector. As a result, they started to furlough staff and reduce the workforce. This didn’t end here and further continued with strict actions like freezing the hiring process and reducing salaries. Millions of people were out of work that threw a logical question- do companies need to de-prioritize culture instead of saving money?
The answer to this is an absolute no! The purpose of any organization is to hire talent. In this tough time when we all are suffering the pandemic, companies need not compromise on their culture. Instead, culture plays a significant role where employees prefer culture over salary when it comes to their job satisfaction.
Then, how can a company leverage culture during the COVID-19 crisis?
In this blog, we have covered five proven ways that you can follow to strengthen your company culture during the pandemic. So, let’s begin!
5 Proven Ways to Save Your Company Culture During the Pandemic
Foster Psychological Safety
The organization’s environment plays a key role in building a culture. It lays the foundation of mutual trust between the employees. Imagine a situation where you are reprimanded for expressing your views? Nobody likes to work in such an environment.
The organization needs to inculcate humility, curiosity, interest, and fallibility in the top management. It will promote more participation on the part of employees. Also, focus on giving constructive feedback and stop playing the blame game. Instead, be a critique that brings out the best in the team.
Develop a Structured Cycle to Support New Employees
As soon as you hire a new employee, ensure that he has all the resources that he needs to give the best in his area of expertise. It’s wise to prepare a plan and schedule meetings that will help reduce the stress and anxiety of the new hires.
Moreover, it will facilitate open communication with other teams of the organization as well. Always start small as they will find it easy to complete the tasks and get the knack of the working pattern. All this will give them the needed sense of accomplishment.
Prioritize Quality Work
Sometimes the authorities push the remote team to respond to the messages, emails and show up immediately. You have to inculcate a sense of safety and security in the employees. Calling them frequently or pushing them to respond to your messages may seem like nagging.
Understand that your employees also have their personal space. Give them the liberty to work at their own pace. When you do so, you will get quality work at their end. They will give uninterrupted attention to their tasks. However, it does create boundaries within the remote team and time-bound them.
Define Your Working Model
It is wise to have a defined working model when you are working with remote teams. Otherwise, everything will get messy, and you may struggle to segregate the tasks. Before you start working on a project, have a dialogue with your team. Try to assess their needs, communicate what they are expected to do, and work out what’s reasonable.
Sometimes you may find things are not working as expected. Talk to the team and try to acknowledge the difference in the working approach. It will help the organizations to get to know their employees better and find out a common ground.
Welcome Feedbacks and Be Flexible
If you are new to handling a remote team, chances are you may get things a little off the track initially. It is crucial to talk to every employee and ask them for feedback. If you feel there is room for adjustments, don’t hesitate to make quick changes. Also, ask them to pay attention to the process and communicate what worked the best and what didn’t. It will lay the foundation of constructive feedback, where employees are free to speak their minds and get heard.
Maintaining a remote team and keeping your company culture amidst the pandemic is challenging. However, focusing on virtual team-building activities and following the tips mentioned above will help.
