Buying local also means supporting our artists in times of crisis
Even if, during that period, teleworking allows businesses and their employees to function from a distance, it also comes with its share of challenges.
This crisis is a unique opportunity to strengthen your team in order to unite your people and be present for everyone.
Corporate culture is more so defined by the way a team is capable of confronting moments of storms than by how it reacts when everything is peaceful. It is even more accurate when the repercussions are so unfavourable that you need to let go of a few of your most valuable and committed employees to survive the current crisis.
"For the first time, we had to move a few of our talented people to the position of observers, people who embodied the agency's values and were contributing in their way to our corporate culture. For weeks and months to come, we have a duty towards them, the duty to continue to embody Republik social standards and work together so they can reintegrate our team."
-Vincent Fortin, President of Republik
Maintaining corporate culture during this period of crisis will help your company to come back faster and better than ever. Here are a few ideas that might help you live your social, corporate culture despite the distance.
Stay active even at home
Keep your hopes up
Don't take yourself too seriously
Talk about something else than your job
Provide the necessary material to work from home
Establish clear communication channels from the start
Having the right tools for a collaborative work
Regardless of your social standards, it is vital to put a few activities in place and any mechanism to help them come to life. Do not think your corporate culture will survive by itself, and please, don't take it for granted.
We need a spirit of solidarity more than ever within our team and in society as well.
