CRFCast - HR Insights from the Corporate Research Forum: How to Connect with People in a Virtual World with Nick Morgan

Face-to-face communication is becoming rarer in the modern workplace, with ever more interactions taking place virtually. However, research shows that virtual communication is much less effective, and it’s hard to build trust that’s essential to effective relationships at work. In conversation with Nick Morgan, author of Can You Hear Me? How to Connect with People in a Virtual World, we discuss the pitfalls, how to improve virtual communication, and the role HR policies can play.

Creating an Inclusive Culture

Progress towards diversity has not always met the promise of investments made. One of the underlying reasons for this is that organisations have focused on increasing the number of employees from underrepresented groups, rather than addressing the organisation culture that determines whether people feel included, and thrive. This research report explores what an inclusive culture looks like, and sets out practical recommendations for improvement. It focuses on two key aspects that shape the culture: the values and attitudes of leaders, and the systems and processes that define how organisation operates. CRF members can access the report freely by logging in on the website.
