“I think it starts with just communication and even the office that's left, which is going to have to be reimagined in every detail – much more centred on collaboration and on what sociologists call ‘human moments’, because that’s where the collaboration happens. That's where the spark, the creativity which is so needed now, happens.”

– Gina DeLapa, author of Thriving at Work

Do you know what it takes to build a truly thriving company culture? And what roles do leaders play in building this culture?

Just as COVID forced us to look at our own humanity, we are now viewing our physical and digital workplaces differently – and it is important to look through this multifaceted lens in order to understand what roles leaders can play in enhancing the employee experience and enabling organizations to thrive in this new environment.

Company culture expert and author of Thriving at Work, Gina DeLapa, chats with Nancy Goebel about the impacts of COVID on leaders and company culture, and provides some practical guidance on navigating our new world of work.

With examples from Ford Motor Group and Microsoft, the conversation dives deep into some of the cultural hurdles of this transition into the post-pandemic world, outlining tools we need and lessons learned for creating a positive company culture as organizations return to work and adjust to becoming hybrid organizations and teams, as well as in the work lives of individuals.

Hear more about the importance of checkpoints, empathy and being purposeful in our planning, as we build and nurture thriving cultures that will not only engage people but inspire them and enable them to come together to collaborate in new and more productive hybrid workplaces.
