As organisations across the UK face up to the challenge of hybrid working, Nationwide Building Society has made headlines with a bold approach.
In our latest Sequel Presents: A Coffee With, we spoke to Senior Internal Communications Manager Kate Shaw to find out how the Society is trusting its employees to shape its next steps and how internal communicators are playing a vital role in keeping people connected.
She spoke about Nationwide’s ground-breaking Future of Work report and the Society’s ongoing commitment to extensive research as it puts listening at the heart of its response.
For instance, Nationwide has used feedback from around 9,000 of its employees to inform a six-point ‘Work Anywhere’ policy, which is a blueprint for its approach.
Kate also gave several tips for internal communicators and businesses on negotiating the journey to a hybrid workplace while keeping colleagues connected.
