Have you had trouble maintaining a good work atmosphere & healthy employee relationships since transitioning to hybrid mode?


In the latest HeartCount webinar, we covered the topic of team conflicts in hybrid work environment, which have become the pain point of many HR professionals and managers. Anne Bourguignon, Talent Manager at Emakina BE and Jolanta Żarnoch, HR Director at Web Talk, shared their insights on what you can do to prevent those conflicts and how to act if they do appear.


In case you missed it, the webinar is available on YouTube for you to watch.


The key takeaways we think you will find useful:


  • Preventing over resolving


You can either avoidresolve or actively prevent problems, and the path you choose to take will determine the overall success of your business. Needless to say that the last option (to actively prevent problems from happening) comes with a lot of responsibilities but is also the option where the negative parts are the least prominent. The starting point is in building an open and healthy company culture, where transparent communication is nurtured in good times but more importantly in times of crisis. A company culture that is based on trust and flexibility is a great base for hybrid work to be done right.


  • Open up the conversation


In order to identify the problem or the possibility for it to appear, listen to your employees. One of the most efficient ways to do this is to organize one-on-one meetings, giving them the chance to speak up about their concerns. Sometimes, all you have to do in order to come up with a solution is listen. In addition to that, using tools like HeartCount, will help you identify the conflicts in the early stage through regularly conducted surveys. This will give you an opportunity to act timely and thus prevent things from escalating.


  • Conflicts aren’t necessarily a bad thing


Whether we like it or not, conflicts are inevitable. They occasionally appear in every segment of our life, and work is no exception to that. While some people view them as something negative and try to avoid them, it’s important to have in mind that we can learn a lot from them. They are a great source for improvement of both business practices and human relationships.
