THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING
Hybrid work provides additional opportunities to connect to and participate in your team, such as stopping for a chat with colleagues or participating in virtual projects with home staff.
Fremont, CA: Offices across the country have begun to open again after over a year of remote operations and virtual communication, and many adopting a hybrid work strategy. Whether individually or virtually, connecting and communicating with others remains an essential skill in this new working age. Three ways to facilitate effective communication in a hybrid work environment are provided:
Keep Eye contact
Whether you are in a video call, meeting a colleague at the office, eye contact can look challenging or even unnatural if you talk to someone. But still, eye contact is an effective connection tool. It can not only help you to make an impact on your message, but it also shows colleagues that you listen carefully.
There are times when you communicate with people in person and virtually simultaneously within the new hybrid working environment. It may at first be difficult to communicate with two different types of audiences. One way to manage it is through your voice. Good speech articulation, so you speak clearer, helps to get your message across. For people who listen via video call, this is especially helpful.
You may think that while working from home, you missed important talks and even simple casual calls into the office. Hybrid work provides additional opportunities to connect to and participate in your team, such as stopping for a chat with colleagues or participating in virtual projects with home staff.
