Building a Stronger Workplace Culture With Hybrid and In-Office Workers


Talent development professionals are currently facing a unique set of challenges with uniting workplace culture and increasing employee engagement. As organizations navigate the particularly complex return to office with some employees remaining hybrid, many encounter a journey that may last years. But waiting until all the questions and details are settled is not an option; companies will need to act swiftly before workplace morale begins to suffer.

Solving and Normalizing the Return to the Workplace

The last few years have transformed how we work, bringing a slew of normalized remote work practices, hybrid models, and significant changes in employee expectations. With an overly burdened department, how can HR professionals navigate the “whack-a-mole” challenges that arise as offices are in different states of transition to a physical office? And how can they do this while maintaining and enhancing workplace culture? A few common—though not exhaustive— challenges that we’ve seen arise from our customers include:

  • Uncertainty and anxiety from employees needing to compromise on the flexibility they enjoyed with remote work. How can HR provide a supportive environment?

  • Misaligned team dynamics as teams may have changed or evolved during the pandemic. How can HR facilitate efforts to ensure cohesion within the workplace?
  • New skill shortfalls as employees may have to evolve with the rapid evolution of the workplace. What skills can HR foster to establish modern competencies?
