ANSR Leadership Forum


Harnessing culture that aligns to people’s values

Reimagining the office culture

A hybrid working model that strikes a good balance of remote and office-based work awaits most employees and organizations in the next normal.  Embracing the hybrid model might seem straightforward at first, but it will prove more complex because the change must be anchored to organizational culture.

As organizations are looking to build hybrid teams, they must reimagine how they will shape and nurture a culture that brings employees around a common cause. An effective organizational culture aligns with the vision, purpose, and goals of the business. While the quality of work and the impact that the employees are creating are important, creating a unique work culture is key. This unique work culture is the foundation that allows employees to feel empowered, be heard and valued in their organization.
