?Just because it is trendy, does not make it right.
Companies want to be agile, flexible, and give workers freedom with their work schedule.
?This is great in general, except something is being missed.
What is being missed is if your organization or team benefits as a result of following a specific trend.
??♀️Following external trends and applying them to your workplace can have unintended consequences.
?Consequences such as a negative impact on team and company culture.
✅For example –
Transitioning a traditional work environment to one encouraging remote work for employees. The reason for the transition is in an attempt to attract new talent. (You have “heard” that this is a new trend that works.) .
❓This trend may attract more employees, yet are you prepared as an organization to adopt this trend?
Hiring new team members for a remote work role requires different management skills and will affect your work culture. Are you ready for those changes and how to determine if the outcome is right for you?
?So before getting too wrapped up in new trends, make sure that they are the best match for the team you want to create.
