WHY TAKE THIS WORKSHOP?
As the end of the pandemic crisis is uncertain, you are deciding if or how to plan a successful permanent transition to a remote/hybrid culture. But changing culture is difficult and expensive, and any misstep can affect profoundly the company.
The coronavirus has forced companies to adopt remote work practices in a matter of weeks, and it has impacted the way companies and teams recruit, onboard new hires, manage meetings and communication processes, and so many others. However, digitalising existing processes is not enough. In order to transition successfully, companies need to develop a culture that is suitable for remote or hybrid work.
During this 3-part workshop, Bretton Putter, culture expert and author and CEO of Culture Gene, will give you insight into the 9 best practices that successful remote work companies focus on and what you need to do to transition your culture to a remote or hybrid model.
All How to Web workshops consist of live sessions with the instructor delivered online, with no recorded materials, so you can discuss your problems and get your questions answered.

In the last years, a growing number of employees has switched from the traditional office work to remote work, opting to work from home, abroad, or a well-designed coworking space in the name of flexibility, technological progress and productivity.
However, as remote work as become part of the new normal due to the pandemic, companies have also developed hybrid environments, where part of the employees work in-office and part remotely, or part of the activities happen in the office and the rest remotely.
These transitions have changed the way a company manages it’s people-related processes, including communication and leadership-related processes.
