A wide-range of modules

Our culture experts cover a range of topics depending on your needs. Whether you need an introduction to remote working, help with working from home around the family or advice on looking after wellbeing (yours and your teams) we can support you.

Support and interventions

All of our remote working interventions are packed with practical frameworks and inspirational stories and deliver a virtual session full of tips and ideas that people can immediately use.

Maintaining connection

In a virtual world, maintaining connection is even more important. By joining one of our modules, you can learn to keep your teams connected, ensure inclusion and use remote tools and channels to reinforce high-performance remote working.

How can we help?

With enforced remote working now a reality, millions of us are adjusting to what it means when nearly all colleagues, stakeholders and clients are working away from the workplace. Not to mention the added dynamic of home-schooling.

We’ve been working with many businesses in Asia over the past few months to enable this and are now supporting organisations across the UK to do the same including SalesForce, EcoAge, SSE, OVO Energy and more. The result is productive teams that are best equipped to manage their own output and wellbeing.

Lane Crawford - three months of remote working case study

We’ve been supporting Lane Crawford - one of Asia’s oldest and most respected luxury retailers - for a number of years as they progress with the development of a strong, 21st century-ready culture. Recently, due to the coronavirus outbreak, our focus for them has had to shift rapidly to support them through this time.

Andrew Keith, the company’s president, says “it’s hard to articulate the array of unprecedented challenges this situation has presented but at the heart of our response has been supporting people and keeping them connected - to each other and the organisation."

The Bank of Me Special Remote Working edition is packed full of tips, stories and inspiration to help people at this time (and beyond) to keep those human bank balances in the black.

We can't wait to hear what you think of it and which tips are resonating with your teams.
