Engaging with your workforce in a remote setting


A recent discussion among life sciences executive leaders centered on how they have responded to business and personal challenges brought on by the pandemic over the last 18 months. Respondents were attendees at the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) forum, Leading with Empathy.


While 33% of respondents indicate they are proud of their ability to keep their teams engaged in a virtual world, only 3% indicated they were most proud of how they responded to the diverse needs of their staff in an equitable way, and only 7% indicated they were most proud they were able to inspire confidence.


“We are in a time of an unprecedented job market, and companies have a high risk of losing their top talent if their employees needs are not met,” said Amy Flynn, Life Sciences Industry leader. “Responding to your teams’ needs and making people feel comfortable and secure while many of us are still primarily virtual is absolutely vital. Working virtually is not going away any time soon.”
