1:30 PM Creating Collaborative and Adaptive Space for Innovation to Thrive

Remote work has shown benefits for productivity, employee satisfaction and safety, but it’s becoming clear that employees also feel something is missing. The ability to create, to workshop ideas, to have open conversation is not as easy to facilitate in online environments, a factor that can stifle innovation if not mitigated.

To create spaces for employees solve problems, create new and innovative products and to facilitate an environment where employees and the organization can adapt, leadership has to cultivate a space where that can occur. In this session, we’ll look at methods to do this in virtual environments and how organizations can continue to be the best version of themselves in a pandemic.

Key takeaways include:

  • Understand how remote work impacts innovation
  • Identify and overcome roadblocks to collaborative virtual environments
  • Improve the organization’s ability to adapt and innovate in any setting.
