Business leaders need a new game plan, so here’s ours. Firstly, understanding your criteria is a critical part of being a proactive recruiting, HR and Business Support partner. It’s all about the service and value we can add to our clients and candidates. Engaging in productive conversation is the most valuable currency we have. During these past months, we have transformed not only the way we communicate but also the way we’ve worked; preserving our unique working culture whilst remaining agile online. We therefore wanted to offer an insight as to how we’ve achieved this, and will continue to adapt over the months to come…
Here’s five things we’ve learned from remote working:
1️⃣ Clear and decisive communication
Early on we made the clear and decisive decision of closing our offices and eliminating travel. Since then we’ve had frequent email communications with a levelled response plan – including checking in with our employees
2️⃣ Prioritisation of projects to impact productivity…
We’ve tried to foster trust and delegate where possible. Our Account Managers have made the call on high-level priorities, so all our employees can focus on their best work. Hiring is happening!
This period of remote working requires a new frontier of flexibility. We’ve acknowledged that schedules are going to be fluid as people adjust to working from home and, in some cases, managing a family at the same time
4️⃣ Taking time to empathise
Now, more than ever, we understand all our teams need empathy and understanding. With many employees feeling anxious and sometimes isolated, we’ll continue to offer information and advice on a daily basis
We truly understand that the way you organise your remote team, and yourself as a leader of it, matters most during times of crisis
