PROSPER – The challenges of belonging in a remote and hybrid environment


It may seem hard for people to integrate into the culture and processes of an organization when there are limited opportunities for physical, emotional and mental connection.

These are some of the challenges of the day for developing inclusive working environment once you have switched to a hybrid mode:

  • Hiring, onboarding, and training the new hires – it just doesn’t work online only
  • Workplace socialising – with whom, if everybody is at home
  • Culture fit – how, if we don’t know each other
  • Communication and access to information – so many channels and tools are used at the same time
  • Distractions in the different places (at home; the phones in people’ hands; working simultaneously, etc. – all these are part of the hybrid working no matter we like it or not)
  • Team events and team buildings
  • Setting fair performance evaluation standards …

As you see the challenges to belonging affect and the productivity, wellbeing and sustainability simultaneously.
