What’s the best part about all the virtual meetings that have taken the place of face-to-face meetings?
Getting to know your employees and clients even better, according to a new article by Keith VanderZanden, practice lead of ABD’s wholesale benefits division, Advanced Professionals Insurance & Benefit Solutions.
Even though we miss some of the body language that comes with an in-person meeting, the virtual landscape instead gives us a different perspective on our colleagues that can help leaders better support work-life balance, VanderZanden writes in the article Virtual Landscape Introduces New Tools to Support Work-Life Balance.
“In the virtual landscape, family and hobbies have become more of a focal point, changing those once-taboo topics into more of a conversation starter. It also gives us the opportunity get to know our colleagues beyond the personality they once brought to the office.
“As a leader, I value this insight as we tread new territory that is more focused on providing support, especially with many workers forced to also juggle school closures and other potential family obligations during a pandemic.”
