First Workings Founder and Chairman, Kevin Davis, was recently published in The American Genius!
In his opinion piece, Can Gen-Z talent build social capital in a remote working world?, Kevin discusses engaging Gen-Z students, the value of mentorship, and the importance of in-office work for new talent.
“A young person entering the workforce will not have the same office relationships as older colleagues. It’s important for HR staff and management to encourage as much interaction as possible outside of Slack and email. If new staff members have a question or concern about a project, they should set up a Zoom call (or meet in person, if possible) allowing relationships, trust, and social capital to develop. Furthermore, employees should be encouraged to connect “offline” by working in person at the same time, if in-person work is optional. This will help colleagues relate better to one other, and build trust.“
