Here are three takeaways from Matthew Glover, Head of Legal Operations at Colt Technology Services, at our recent In-House Legal Hangout where the panel shared their thoughts on working remotely.
LEARN ABOUT EACH OTHER
Matthew explained how he and his team have prioritised wellbeing by making conversation personal as well as work-based.
“When we got into the first part of the lockdown, the main focus was really on employee health and wellbeing. Because it was clear that if people were in a difficult state personally because their home situation was very, very challenging or the wider situation was challenging for them, then work was just going to be another added pressure and that was going to be really difficult for them.
The team interaction has been focused very much around that sort of personal wellbeing. So we’re sharing a lot more stories about what we’ve been up to during the lockdown. You know, hobbies, the things we’ve been able to achieve that are separate from work and I think we’ve learned a lot more about each other as a team as a result of that. That’s been really central to a lot of the team communication that we’ve been doing.”
