We’re hopeful that all supervisors will think about how some employees are feeling a strong sense of isolation and would benefit from structured visits and check-ins. This great article has 8 strategies you can test drive like coffee chats, virtual lunches and asking a question of the week. Even though we’ve been at this for a while now, don’t forget some of the strategies we provided early on:
- Open meetings a few minutes early to give people a chance to visit and catch up
- Establish a schedule for check-ins
- Celebrate birthdays and other milestones remotely
- Encourage spontaneous conversations during meetings
Be well, and stay connected.
