Diving in to another topic from our 2021 World Changers report, Elle Bradley-Cox has a very cultured conversation
Zoom fatigue, long days spent in spare rooms, the absence of the watercooler. The face-to-face famine that lockdown gave us definitely impacted our wellbeing.
What about our cultures? Without those spontaneous moments of connection, our lives became much more regimented. And, for some, the cultural cornerstones found in the office felt very far away.
Many reported a feeling of disconnection after the novelty of the virtual quizzes wore off. While the world may now be opening back up, the shift towards the hybrid future leaves us in a cultural hinterland. How can we as internal communicators help to bridge the divide to maintain cohesion?
My colleague Lisa Hawksworth chose this theme as her World Changer for our 2021 report. Together with our colleague Russ Norton and special guest Sen Sami, Raytheon UK, we explore the influence of culture on organisations, and the impact of covid on culture.
