1. Influencing workplace culture in remote settings

Managers should create enough sense of belonging, intimacy, and connectivity to collaborate. They should hire people who are culture-fit and would help meet their vision, for which they need to be extra cautious while hiring. 

2. Promoting a sense of engagement in the team

As per Rujuta, employees tend to engage more when the organisation offers them a strong career path. A career path does not include only vertical promotions but also relatively smaller milestones like employee work recognition and advocacy of their skills by seniors. Having career-related conversations is necessary to promote engagement and build connections.

3. Things to implement for the well-being of the employees

Valuing employees' contributions and using their strengths makes them feel good about themselves. Putting employees in different job roles can also give them more opportunities in their careers.
