Mentoring for social cohesion in the hybrid workplace
Your Time:
09/06/22, 14:20

The last two years of the pandemic has resulted in what we are now calling the hybrid workplace - meaning a more flexible workplace where employees can work from home and from the office or even live in one country and work virtually for a company in another country. Companies are trying to find the right balance for the hybrid workplace and they are experimenting and implementing policies for when, how and how much individuals can and should work from home/office. During the pandemic we have seen how this influences the social cohesion at work and wellbeing. People loose touch with what is happening in the company, they feel less a part of something bigger, and they become isolated and only talk to colleagues when they have to perform.

During this period of time, mentoring has become more and more popular as a means to engage and involve individuals in relationships outside of normal hierarchical lines and without specific performance goals.

This session will explore and share stories about how mentoring can contribute to social cohesion, well-being, relationship building and thus to retention and continued personal and career development even when most work must happen online. We will provide time for 1-2 breakouts for the participants to share their stories.
