The evolution of the workplace continues to reach new heights, with many technologies fortifying the capabilities of remote work. While it’s easy to be excited for the future of work, one must never forget a core component in truly making a work-from-home model achieve success: fostering trust and togetherness between teams, despite the distance.
We know that building trust, in and out of the workplace, doesn’t happen overnight. In today’s remote work environment, it’s even more challenging to invite trust and harmony – there’s difficulty in forming real connections in a virtual setup, when others may perceive “virtual” to be “artificial.”
There is no official playbook on how to establish real connections. However, there are ways to invite trust, which can allow teams to thrive in a work environment where unity and togetherness are achieved, nurtured, and given. Here are eight important points for the evolution of the workplace to keep in mind:
- Instill integrity
- Be visible and accessible
- Allow flexibility and room for growth
- Let others lead
- Encourage communication and openness
- Accountability is key!
- Keep your word
- Find time for teams to engage and bond with one another

Building Trust Doesn’t Mean Neglecting Fun
With all that’s happening in the world today, it’s often easy to forget about the importance of having fun and taking the time to truly establish trust with one another. As we slowly embrace face-to-face interactions once again, have a moment to create meaningful interactions with your teams through simple gatherings and the evolution of the workplace! Our teams in Portugal already had a night to remember, thanks to their year-end party that celebrated togetherness, strengthened trust, and more importantly – brought out the fun to our employees.
Trust steers us forward, and togetherness keeps us strong. As a final note, may we all remember that human connections are powerful, and they keep us afloat in this oftentimes unpredictable world.
