How to Maintain Workplace Culture While Telecommuting

When you are a leader trying to maintain culture in a remote office, here are some ideas that may help:

  • Focus on core values first. As a leader, it’s your job to know the core values of your organization. Yes, those words written on a wall somewhere. Make sure you know them, and know the definition of them.
  • Give the core values life. Once you know the core values inside and out, write down some times when you’ve seen your team embody those core values. Then, share those stories with your team a little bit at a time. Keep a running list of new examples you see, too.
  • Create a space to talk about culture. Whether that is on a Slack or Microsoft Teams channel, or on a monthly Zoom call –  make space for it. Reward positive, culture-affirming behavior, too.

Building a Healthy Remote Workplace Culture

You can build and maintain a healthy workplace culture remotely.

The key is to always keep it top of mind with all your team members. 

No matter if you’re leading in an office or remotely, integrating core values into everyday conversations will help you maintain and build an awesome workplace culture.
