How are workplace leaders bridging the gaps At Work?

Workplace leaders are trying new strategies to close the gaps between employees and executives.

The workplace is a space for people to come together and work towards a common goal. A shared vision among employees and executives can fuel the success of a business. But what happens when these parties don’t see eye-to-eye on the role of the workplace itself? 

Employees and executives have differing views when it comes to the world of work. Gaps between these two groups isn’t a new story. But it’s become far more important for executives and workplace leaders to understand what those gaps are and how to bridge them and build alignment. After surveying 2000 employees and 500 executives in the US and the UK, we uncovered major discrepancies between how these groups saw office taboos, return-to-office deal breakers, proximity bias, and more. 

Closing these gaps isn’t easy, but workplace leaders across the globe are doing it successfully. We decided to chat with Emily Day, Director of Workplace Experience at Hashicorp, Max Cardinale, Vice President at Thermal Shipping Solutions, and Annette Reavis, Chief People Officer at Envoy. We were curious to hear first-hand from workplace experts what changes they’ve made to their workplace in order to make it a better experience for everyone.

Each leader works at a company with different return-to-office policies. One mostly remote, one hybrid, and one fully in-office. These workplace leaders are implementing unique solutions in their offices to make the workplace better for employees and executives alike. We asked them how they’re tackling challenges like proximity bias, onsite and virtual team building, and employee deal breakers for returning onsite.

Check out all of the interviews and hear directly from these workplace leaders to hear what’s working to bridge the gaps At Work.
