NWOW: to be able to work at home and feel at home at work

The new ways of working ask for a different approach to your employees. During this session brainmove guided our members & partners through this process. By guiding us through the "Workplace game" they explained what’s important to keep in mind when implementing the new way of working.

The perfect work-life balance is more important than ever, organizations are striving to find and to keep as many employees as possible by making their organization attractive.

There are four important aspects you have to be aware of when working human centered:  

  • Working dynamic & flexible
  • Sharking knowledge
  • Results orientated
  • Independent of time and place

Your new working environment has to reward the behaviour of your employees and has to make the right behaviour attractive. When working in a library for example, being silent is rewarded. Before behaviour becomes embedded, you have to set a good example yourself. As a leader you have “walk the talk” if you want others to do the same. Leadership changes a lot when changing your way of working. Result-oriented work asks for an open communication and a based-trust relationship between the members of the team.

During this session, we played the Workplace Game. This game – made by the Center for People and Buildings – makes a discussion about behaviour in your working environment possible. In a playful way you can talk about which behaviour is needed according to you and listen to what others would do in that kind of situation. The game provides statements about teleworking, use of workstations, communication…
