Rating people on the key performance indicators, hierarchical structures and presenteeism of the past simply won’t work in today’s remote working environment. Leaders need to re-think how they engage with their teams, and measure what ‘good’ looks like after the pandemic.
UK&I MD, Tom Way, discusses the trust revolution and the impact this is having on the employer-employee relationship in SIA’s The Staffing Stream.
"Managers have to understand and relate to their teams. They have to be sympathetic to the needs of individuals.”
