So many teams went remote this year, and many teams are still working remotely. Toward the beginning of the pandemic, I published a post on remaining engaged (and keeping your team engaged, if you’re in management) while working remotely, and much of that post still holds true now, at the end of 2020.

The main points?

  • Impress on managers how crucial engagement is with every single team member
  • Engagement leads to productivity and overall employee happiness

After posting, readers all chimed in with their own excellent points and tales of engagement success, such as managers who have increased virtual meetings in order to increase engagement, and those who speak with team members more than normal now, as well as those who have employed a range of tech to keep team members better connected from afar.

What did you do in 2020 to increase engagement on your team?
