Remote work: The impact on human interactions
In this interview with Stephan Dohrn - Collaboration Architect specialised in remote and hybrid teams - we talk about how remote and hybrid work has affected human interactions and what leaders and individual contributors can do to keep having meaningful interactions online.
More than ever, teams are self-governed. There is a need for leaders to give more autonomy and trust, as well as for team members to take on more ownership of their work. How to do that when the team is distributed and people lack visibility on what is going on in other team members' lives?
A mix of transparency, self-awareness and being intentional about the way we work seems to be part of the solution.
We talked to Chris Dyer, remote work leader and advocate about the impact of remote on human interactions.
We discussed how human interactions with colleagues, family & friends have changed since we've all gone remote, some best practices to keep everyone in the team updated despite the distance and the importance of being intentional about 'How' you meet.
Chris together with co-author Kim Shepherd wrote the ultimate guide for companies to transition smoothly to remote - looking at processes, humans, some tips and more!

We talked to Clark Elliott, workplace strategist and co-founder of the Workplace Evolutionaries Hub in Switzerland about the evolution of the workplace and its impact on human interactions.
At the crossroad between architecture and social psychology, Clark has helped transform the workplace of many of the world's largest organisations to support human interactions.
"Leadership has to step out of the way work has been done so far to consider new opportunities. Give people choice to work from wherever they are the most productive. Let them be proactive and ask themselves "What do I need to do, and would that be better done at home."
The office has become the space where human interactions happen, for creativity and social cohesion. Let's make sure the environment attracts people and energises them!"
Neil Beecroft, Sustainability disruptor and founder of PuraWorka, CoWorking destinations around the world, tells us all about how "working from anywhere" has disrupted the way human interactions happen and new connections are made.
Not only does working remotely create new connections amongst co-workers but also between local communities and communities of remote workers. This is how new projects take place, knowledge is shared and connections are created in the PuraWorka communities of Zermatt, Lambok and Sion.
