Last week, I asked the question, is WFH doing your head in?
As one leader said to me today, “Whilst it has been nice to say hello to people after not seeing them in person for twelve months it is difficult to have team connection when others in the team don’t come in and the team call then still happens online. It leaves you feeling like, well this was pointless and I could have done this call at home"
Being the leader making the decision isn't a walk in the park either. Trying to accommodate the diverse preferences of employees and do the right thing by the business.
No one sets out to disengage their people, but for many, this has been an unintended consequence of many ‘return to the workplace’ discussions.
In this article, I share some practical guidance to help leaders and teams work this one through.
