The Importance Of Managing Culture When Enabling Location Free Working
Location Free Working is a concept of being able to work effectively, regardless of location or when work gets done.
In our latest video series, Marc Ueckermann, Chief Technology Officer and Business Owner at Xenith, explores 6 crucial elements of enabling location free working.
Marc recently presented this content at the Enterprise Digital Workplace 2020 conference in November, alongside companies like Ikea, JP Morgan and BAE. The talk was very well attended and stimulated lots of debate amongst IT & transformation leadership professionals. We will be publishing extracts of the talk over the coming three weeks, but you can also watch the full presentation video here.
In part 1, he explores 'Managing Culture' and how this impacts the ability to enable location free working, including:
- How employees are considering improvements to their work-life balance and the challenge this brings for leaders and managers
- The importance of understanding employee needs
- The importance of nurturing a culture of growth
- How to give employees more time for innovation and creativity with a 'hybrid workforce'
"People create innovation, so we need to provide a business culture that promotes innovation and creative thinking"
