Key Steps | Hybrid Work and its tech tools is damaging culture. Or is it not?
Event Day viewing links: http://www.blend.world/academy/live/ and https://www.youtube.com/BlendDotWorld/live Hybrid work is booming because of tech; the collaboration tools that became popular. But does it impact culture; destructively? People sitting in the same house or workplace can all be looking at different screens and communicating with different people—some within the same physical space—without even considering that they could talk with each other face to face?
Such tech may give us the illusion of companionship without the demands of friendship or teammate-ship. At the workplace, we may feel isolated, abandoned and lonely….afraid to share. When we cannot share and talk freely with our colleagues, there is a danger of company culture suffering damage. Or not? Hear it from Philippa Hale, , Senior Associate, Advanced Workplace Associates, in this breezy conversation.
