As more and more companies adopt hybrid workforces – a mix of remote and in-office workers – it’s becoming increasingly important to foster a high-performance culture that can thrive in this new environment. A high-performance culture is one where employees are engaged, motivated, and productive, and where teamwork and collaboration are prioritized. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of high-performance culture in hybrid workforces and how TeamBuilder, our innovative SaaS platform, can help you build one.
Improved Productivity: A high-performance culture can lead to increased productivity among employees. When employees are engaged and motivated, they’re more likely to put in extra effort and work efficiently. With TeamBuilder’s suite of tools, managers can help employees stay engaged and motivated, no matter where they’re working from. Features like Banter, which encourages engagement among hybrid teams through virtual “water cooler” conversations, and Challenges, which support corporate initiatives in health and wellness, DEI, and employee training, can help keep employees engaged and motivated to perform at their best.
Reduced Turnover: High-performance cultures can also help reduce employee turnover. When employees are happy and engaged, they’re less likely to look for opportunities elsewhere. TeamBuilder’s Recognition feature allows team members to publicly recognize each other with shout-outs when they see each other practicing corporate values. This kind of recognition can go a long way in making employees feel valued and appreciated, which can help improve retention rates.
Stronger Connections: Hybrid workforces can often lead to employees feeling disconnected from each other and from the company culture. With TeamBuilder’s IceBreakers feature, managers can help make new team members feel like they’ve been part of the team since its inception. Banter, which encourages virtual “water cooler” conversations, can also help employees build stronger connections with each other, even when they’re not in the same location.
Improved Employee Engagement: Employee engagement is critical for the success of any organization, but it’s especially important in hybrid workforces. With TeamBuilder’s suite of tools, managers can help improve employee engagement in a variety of ways. The 1:1 Planner feature, for example, helps managers organize their recurring 1:1 meetings and make their direct reports a natural part of the process. The Challenges feature, which provides curated, highly engaging, low-distraction activities that are just plain fun, can also help improve employee engagement.
Better Collaboration: Collaboration is critical for the success of any team, but it can be challenging in a hybrid workforce. With TeamBuilder’s suite of tools, managers can help improve collaboration among team members, no matter where they’re located. The Banter feature, for example, can encourage virtual “water cooler” conversations that can lead to better collaboration and teamwork. The Challenges feature can also support corporate initiatives in health and wellness, DEI, and employee training, which can help improve collaboration across the team.
Stronger Company Culture: Finally, a high-performance culture can help build a stronger company culture, which can have a ripple effect throughout the organization. With TeamBuilder’s suite of tools, managers can reinforce company values and help make employees feel more connected to the company culture. The Banter feature, for example, can encourage employees to share stories and experiences that reflect the company culture, while the Recognition feature can help highlight employees who embody the company’s values.
In conclusion, there are many benefits to building a high-performance culture in a hybrid workforce, from improved productivity and reduced turnover to better collaboration and a stronger company culture. With TeamBuilder’s suite of tools, managers can help build a high-performance culture
