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.
