Remote Employee Engagement and Resilience Building
Let’s Come Together and
As we are all adjusting to the “new normal”, we, at Storybolt, would love to support your organization’s Employee Engagement and Resilience Building efforts by offering our virtual sessions built around real stories and impactful conversations.
At Storybolt, we offer online events that explore top D&I topics as they relate to the current circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, through short-documentary screenings and live Q&A with the filmmaker, all taking place remotely via Zoom.
- Virtual bias and how it affects productivity and communication (Implicit bias).
- The double burden of professional women working remotely (Gender equity).
- Effects of isolation and how to overcome them (Mental health)
- What mindfulness is and how it can be a tool for managing anxiety (Mental health)
Our sessions are a great way to strengthen employee performance and engagement as they facilitate a way to build empathy, check-in with employees, build team and leader resilience, create new team rituals, and address the loss of inclusivity experienced by the forced-to-be remote employees.
At Storybolt, we thrive to help companies emerge from the current challenges even stronger. Please contact us to learn more and tell us how we can help.
