Fostering Community and Belonging Beyond the Workplace Water Cooler

  • Timezone : US/Mountain
  • Date : September 23, 2022 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Meeting Type : Closer Conversation

Conversationalists discussed strategies for building community in the new world of work where teams are no longer connecting around the office water cooler. As teams are increasingly distributed, how can higher education leaders nurture community and support remote workers? How do new hires connect to organizational values, culture, and colleagues, especially if they are remote? If an institution doesn’t support remote or hybrid work, how does that impact retention and employee satisfaction?
