How do you connect with your coworkers and teams today? With some teams returning to the office or in a hybrid work environment what is working out the best?

We were using Teams globally pre-COVID because we had global teams. Even within the USA we had team members at sites all over the country. The big change will be the loss of potential netting and co-working times while people commute. I have team members that drive over 30 minutes one way. That’s a loss of 1 hour of options across time zones. I’d prefer we continue work from home but CEO has declared we will go back to 100% in the office. However they would also like you to join calls before and after your commute to and from work. I think this time it will fail since there are so many more jobs available. We have seen a larger number of departures than normal post bonus payment. I sense it will accelerate

Stupid AUTO-CORRECT - and still no option to edit a post.  That should be "Loss of potential Meeting and CO-Working Times"     Co-working is what we called a SKPE or TEAMS "meeting" where two people scheduled time to collaborate to create, solve, install, test etc.  Similar to how you might walk into someone's office and use the whiteboard or test and work together.  Only difference is you are miles and miles apart and likely in different time zones.

We use the Zoho's suite of tools! Running training programs, activities, webinars etc. can all be managed fairly well with zoho.

Apart from tools, implementing processes that involve regular communication between team members will ensure a positive effect on company culture.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
