    In the past workplace culture was handled based on in-person conversations, performance was measured on metrics as well as on team interactions.

    Now and into the future workplace culture is about remote and how to engage with remote workers and how to succeed in remote teams.

    In the past few months, our surveys have found that leaders are struggling with how to lead, engage and manage performance of their WFH workers.
