Organizations across the world are striving to manage a workforce that no longer needs to reside at a company desk in a company office. As many employees now perform their duties from home, best practices for talent acquisition, development and retention have radically changed—but have your processes changed along with them?
The world is anxious to get back to work, but getting there will continue to be a monumental challenge, even as cities and counties begin to open back up.
While returning to “business as usual” might still seem little more than hopeful at the moment, it’s never too early to start working toward a safe, strategic, and sustainable return to at least some of the norms we’ve come to expect in the workplace.
In this time of increased remote work, maintaining connections and building strong organizational culture is more important than ever. One of the best ways to achieve this with remote employees is through regular one-on-one meetings.
Traditional staff recognition awards like "Employee of the Month" and Employee of the Year" are usually given with good intent, but they can be problematic.
With a majority of workforces thrust into the world of working from home (WFH) on short notice and with no definitive end in sight, now more than ever it is crucial that employees feel supported, heard, and connected.
As a leader, it can feel overwhelming to try to figure out the best ways to achieve this when you are not physically together each day.
That's why we created this resource.

We spent days imagining how we might bring a more connected remote work experience to our team and to Polly users across the globe. Then we gathered all hands on deck, with every functional role on our global team leaning in to bring it to life.
The past few weeks posed a tremendous challenge for people and organizations across the world. Employees whose jobs haven't vanished had their way of working upended in a matter of weeks or even days.
An unprecedented number of organizations across the world transitioned to a Work from Home (WFH) program on very short notice recently. What counts for “business as usual” changed completely in a matter of weeks, and that upending of routines presents an ongoing challenge for many leaders.
Over the past several weeks, the world has experienced an unprecedented rise in employees Working From Home (WFH) -- many of whom are new to the experience. While working from home can be beneficial in many ways, navigating your first few days (or weeks) can be surprisingly challenging.
That’s why we built this resource, where we’ll cover key areas like:
