20 Ways to Improve Culture in the Time of COVID

2020 isn’t shaping up to be the year we thought it would. And surely we couldn’t have predicted that a pandemic and the ongoing issues of racial justice would be the top issues leaders would face in the workplace. 

Organizations came out of the gate during the pandemic in a sprint. You probably did too. Holding Zoom meetings. Rearranging travel. Adjusting calendars and protocol and systems for this “new normal.” 

Now, you’re tired. Fatigued. Stressed. And you want to move on. What’s worse, your employees are feeling this too.
