Flexible and remote work allows organizations to be agile, responsive, and innovative in times of disruption now and into the future. Many organizations are quickly pivoting and implementing flexible and remote working options during the current COVID-19 public health crisis and inclusion may not have been top of mind during the rapid transition.
Catalyst research finds that inclusive workplaces have tangible benefits for both employees and organizations, and an employee’s experience of inclusion can be well-explained by their manager’s inclusive leadership behaviors. Ensuring that inclusion is still a priority for remote teams is critically important in creating workplaces that work for women.
What is needed when working remotely to create truly inclusive, innovative collaboration for distributed teams? Also, what do organizations need to ensure that virtual teams and workers truly experience inclusion, by feeling valued, have equal access to important projects and job opportunities, and have a sense of belonging when working remotely?
Watch this virtual discussion sharing challenges, tips, and strategies for success from experts and organizations on how to facilitate inclusion for your remote workers and teams.
