Considering the diversity of topics, Beltug has been supporting our members with activities that focus on one aspect or area. In September 2020, we zoomed in on the implications of ‘homeworking by default’ on policies and legal aspects. In December, we took on the digital side.

In this Debate Room, we talked about safeguarding people’s ‘mental ergonomics’ in your organisation: how to keep ‘the troops’ working together and ensure cohesion? And how to keep your company culture alive and lively?

Peter Caestecker, Product Manager at Orange set the scene with a few practical examples. He shared the initiatives that were set up at Orange, including e-coffees and quizzes, ‘mood polls’ during lockdown, and connecting staff to people they could reach out to for psychological well-being.

Then the floor was open for discussion among peers.

We have published a paper summarising the suggestions and findings from the Debate Room; it is available for Beltug members (after login).
