Opening your eyes is the hardest part — to the fact that the workplace is now virtual, that people are spread across office sites with some fully remote, but mostly, that a perspective change is required to succeed in this new reality.

Our CEO, Sacha Connor, was featured as a contributor in the new must-read book on employee experience: EX by Design - How to create an effective EX for competitive advantage, written by Emma Bridger and Belinda Gannaway. Get 20% off your copy of the book using the discount code AHR20 here http://bit.ly/3aNYXi9

Sacha's contribution to the book comments on the importance of location inclusion for employee experience and how to achieve a positive dynamic within hybrid teams.

As offices and cities start to slowly reopen, it’s vital we don’t slip back into old ways of proximity as paramount.

In the book, she touches on four key areas that will have a profound effect on EX outcomes in a virtual world of work:
1) New virtual leadership principles and communication norms
2) Career development and hiring
3) Upskilling
4) Creating accountability

Virtual communication can be difficult. How do you make sure that you fully understand the assignment your remote manager has given you? Literally get on the same page.

I recommend to all direct reports that when your manager assigns you a new project verbally that you spend 15 minutes writing out a project brief that plays back the important information. Get your manager's approval of that brief before you move forward and it will prevent re-work, misunderstandings, and missed expectations later.

Suggestions for what to include on the project brief:
1. Project Objective - what is the goal of the work and how does it link to strategy
2. Executional Mandatories - i.e. what must be included in the deliverable
3. Key milestones & progress check-in dates
4. Important stakeholders, roles, & responsibilities
