THE OMNIA INSIGHTS
It goes without saying but we will say it - this was not a typical August. The usual excitement and hustle-bustle of the “Back to School” season was dampened with anxiety about making the right decisions. As schools and colleges decided whether to open campuses or continue virtual learning, many working parents were on the fence about what to do – both at school and at work.
Though employers have become creative to ensure employee safety, challenges remain and for far longer than many of us were prepared for. No doubt this is impacting workplace productivity. Tempers are likely short, motivation is a challenge, and there is no clear solution in sight. Your employees need your empathy to help them get through this.
This month, The Omnia team shared resources, tips, and tools to help managers show empathic leadership and provide strategic guidance during these uncertain times. Our experts have been assisting organizations through daily and disaster situations for more than three decades. While this is a new crisis, understanding human behavior is what we know, and behavioral insight has never been more critical. Self-aware people are more effective and productive.
In this issue, we summarize these useful tips. We show you how to ease your employees’ return-to-the-office anxieties with an effective “reboarding” process. In our top 5 tips, we also share ways to tailor your communication to lead effectively and improve those virtual meetings.
In case you missed it, you can watch our on-demand webinar for using behavioral insights to help you lead in today’s uncertain “back to school” and “back to the office” scenarios.
Read on. We’ll see you next month!
