How to Use TeamBuilder to Build Trust Across a Hybrid Workforce
Remote work has become increasingly popular in recent years, and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated this trend. As a result, many companies now have a hybrid workforce with employees working both in office and remotely. While this offers many benefits, it can also lead to challenges, including a lack of trust among team members.
Trust is crucial for any team, but it’s especially important for a hybrid workforce. Fortunately, TeamBuilder by Intuition offers several features that can help build trust among team members, regardless of where they’re located.
The first step to building trust is getting to know your team. With the My Team feature, you can quickly access information on everyone who reports to you, including their departments, locations, and start dates. You can also invite new members and remove old ones, keeping your team roster up to date.
Onboarding new team members can be challenging, but it’s essential to make them feel welcome and included. User Guides is a feature that can automate the onboarding process and help team members get to know each other. When a new member joins the team, they’re asked a set of questions that everyone else has answered as well. This helps break the ice and builds connections among team members.
Good conversations are the foundation of trust, and the Banter feature in TeamBuilder makes it easy to get the conversation flowing. You can ask fun and unique check-in questions to help team members connect and build relationships. This improves company culture and builds trust among team members.
Employee recognition is essential for building trust and engagement in the workplace. With the Shoutouts feature in TeamBuilder, team members can celebrate each other’s accomplishments and commitments to company values. Recognition decreases stress and absenteeism, and reinvigorates employee engagement.
Finally, challenges can be a fun and engaging way to build trust and camaraderie among team members. The Challenges feature in TeamBuilder lets you set up company- and department-wide challenges that promote team building, health and wellness, and build culture within your organization.
By using TeamBuilder’s powerful features, you can build trust and connections among your hybrid workforce, creating a more engaged and productive team.
