Beth Perkins, our director of people and culture, joined Natalie Vittese of xtraChef for a conversation on creating a virtual company culture with Chris Winks, host of the This Week In Jobs (TWIJ) podcast. This is a timely interview, as companies begin to settle into the reality of pandemic-induced remote teams.
Key takeaways were: Don’t force into virtual what only works in real life; stay nimble and find alternative ways to connect. While leadership sets the tone for culture, your team is what makes it come alive.
“Like a vacant lot, culture is always growing, whether you’re intentional or not. You can end up with weeds or a cultivated garden. Culture can guide healthy behavior, or it can breed toxicity.”
