Fast forward: How brokers' communication habits have changed October 21, 2020

 

"It was not hard to adapt to digital communication initially, but the biggest challenge is maintaining engagement over time. Making sure employees attend the daily meetings and that they’re having meaningful interactions, even through the computer. Getting creative and hosting virtual happy hours, book clubs and keeping a “water cooler” meeting on the calendar if employees want to pop in to chat with their colleagues briefly at any point throughout the day.

When you can, turn your camera on for meetings! If I can’t see employees’ faces regularly, I wonder, are they still engaged? When I can see them, it lets me know they are. It’s easy to lose touch and get caught in your individual work, but for teams to remain successful, they should be communicating frequently about tasks and projects. Implement a project management tool, if necessary, to improve visibility and eliminate some of the manual processes." - Rachel Lyubovitzky, EverythingBenefits
