ONLINE ENGAGEMENT - COVID CHALLENGE 2: STAFF & COMPANY CULTURE
Are staff still joining online socials? Do they still keep their cameras on and join in the conversation? Or has their level of interest in online meetings and events declined during the past few months? Is our creativity adversely affected by home working? What ways can staff be kept engaged, feeling appreciated and part of their team and company culture? Discussion with brief examples from:

  • PSNC - moving 'movie nights' online
  • AARNet - virtual wine
