Leading in the Next Normal

Maintaining employee morale, well-being and engagement in the new workplace environment

As we experience the uncertainty, change, challenges and unique onsite and remote operations, we must focus on building morale, creating community and developing an employee culture with a strong sense of resiliency, adaptability, energy, trust and purpose.

Consider the well-being of people in this unique environment. The COVID-19 pandemic presents a range of challenges and stressors in our personal and professional lives. Support is available to help employees cope and manage their well-being. Resources including, health, mental health, wellness, learning and financial well-being, and emotional support are available on Human Resources’ employee well-being hub. Remember to take care of yourself so that you can take care of others. These resources are for you to take advantage of as well.

Leadership Guide:
Support is available to help you lead through the challenges. Refer to the “Leader’s Guide to the Next Normal” and find effective strategies for managing your team. More information and resources will be shared on building morale and fostering positive employee engagement.

We’re here to help you: HR’s Applied Leadership team is available for consultation to talk about maintaining morale or strategize about engagement in your area.

You can also find several courses on the Learning and Development website related to managing change, transparency and resiliency.
