Inclusion in a Virtual Workplace

This is an unsettled and anxious time for all of us and will lead to some of us feeling isolated and disconnected from our workplaces. However, we are now part of what some are calling the biggest homeworking movement that the world has ever seen. This presents a great opportunity for many of us to transform our ways of working enabling many of us to have the freedom to choose when, how and where we work. Now more than ever before we need to pay attention to how we can remain connected with each other while working apart, maintaining a culture of inclusion and a sense of community regardless of our work locations.
