RIBA Wellbeing in the Workplace - The Organisational Focus

A workshop addressing the challenges of managing teams in a remote setting, providing tools and practices for supporting staff effectively.

Many architectural practices may not have enough support or resources in place for employees affected by the uncertainties presented by COVID-19.

As we move towards returning to work and home/remote working as the norm, there is plenty that can be done to help employers create a healthy working environment and understand what it takes to be a supportive employer.

This workshop will provide an overview of leading and managing teams effectively in a remote setting, understanding why people respond and cope in different ways during change, examples of good leadership/management practices, steps to help people adapt during uncertainty and current challenges that managers and team leaders are facing and tips for addressing them.

Join us for a 90-minute, interactive workshop, where we will address steps that managers can introduce to improve the engagement and productivity of staff. You will also be provided with tools and interventions practices can use to promote wellbeing, ways to support staff and remote teams and access to appropriate external support if needed.

What will be covered:

  • leading and managing teams effectively in a remote setting and returning to the workplace
  • understanding why people respond and cope in different ways during change
  • current challenges that managers and team leaders are facing and tips for addressing them
