08 Dec Forbes: Amy Cook on team building in hybrid workplaces
Amy Cook, CMO at Simplus, shared her insights on Forbes on three ways to improve team building in the new landscape of hybrid workplaces. From investing in wellness and utilizing personal social platforms to growing through challenges, there are several ways business leaders can successfully pivot to build a strong team culture despite the changes. Check out the highlights below or the full article here.
Put stock into your team.
“One way companies can support team wellness is to give them the time to learn about general business, together, on company time. For example, this month, we’re giving employees the opportunity to attend the Fishbowl virtual summit on work time and listen to speakers like Shark Tank’s Daymond John talk about his personal tips for growth.” —Amy Cook
Build team trust through challenges.
“Most companies have workflow processes that they hope encourage team development through better communication and coordination efforts. But experts know that a team can only learn to trust each other when those relationships are tested.” —Amy Cook
Broaden your social scope.
“Another way to strengthen team connections in the workplace is to host a meaningful cultural event. As a woman, working at a global technology company is fantastic in many ways. Although it’s easy to get caught up in our busy lives — especially as women — we need to make a special effort to celebrate our diversity by dedicating time to purposeful activities that enhance work relationships. To celebrate International Girlfriends Day, I hosted a virtual mixology event with a celebrity sommelier. As we invited each other into our virtual homes, the event highlighted the distinct position we hold as leaders and the individual responsibilities we carry outside of the workplace.” —Amy Cook
