Many organizations place great emphasis on building and maintaining a strong culture of employee engagement. Engaged teams bring more energy and creativity to their work. But engagement—and interconnectivity, in general—has been particularly challenging throughout the last three months as many of us work remotely for extended periods.

How can organizations maintain and nurture employee engagement even when in-person gatherings aren’t possible? In this week’s Forte Connect, we spoke with Mike Couvillion, Chief Technology Officer at Kazoo, a platform that helps organizations measure and grow employee engagement. Mike and the group share how technology can help organizations keep engagement strong, even when teams are physically apart.

We’re joined once again by our Forte Group team: C.J. Montano, Partner and Managing Director at Forte Group, and Kiersten Lyng, Senior Account Executive, Strategic Partnerships. The group shares their thoughts on managing remote teams, plus how organizational leaders should prepare as businesses begin to reopen their offices.
