Hybrid and Remote Work Culture: What Moments Matter Most?

Updated: Apr 24

We're currently seeing various approaches to office/remote/hybrid work, with some organizations calling for full-time RTO, others embracing fully remote models, and many figuring out a path somewhere in between.ย

๐Ÿ“– A study conducted byย Gartnerย (2022- a little while ago but I think still useful) looks at the moments that forge the strongest cultural connections for hybrid and remote workers.ย

What does this mean for those of us working on culture in remote/hybrid settings?ย 


My reflections are:ย 


๐ŸŽฏ We know that we canโ€™t do everything, being able to invest and direct resources to moments that matter is important (taking the above with a grain of salt, a good place to start is to ask your employees what matters to them!)


๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ Often underestimated in cultural initiatives, peer recognition and building a community where achievements are celebrated and support is available is crucial. Looking at this on a day-to-day basis and not just as a one-off is also key.ย 


๐Ÿ’ฅ Itโ€™s not just about having a purposeโ€”observing leaders talk about purpose in a very personal way is powerful within organisations. These narratives do not always come naturally, helping leaders to connect to their individual and company purposes- and then developing narratives through storytelling is crucial.
