It has become increasingly difficult to ignore the need for businesses to shift from otherwise traditional means of communication and collaboration, online. This need has been exacerbated by the recent crisis and the result of a dispersed workforce. Yet, more than eight out of ten of companies who try, fail, simply because they don’t adequately know how.

Moving your business online and building an organization culture digitally does not have to be intimidating. Understand the importance of having open communication, building a connected culture and collaborating virtually.

In a recent webinar hosted by People Matters, in partnership with Workplace from Facebook, industry leaders Nicole Tan, Country Director, Facebook Malaysia, Ramesh Gopalkrishna, Head of Growth - ASEAN & India, Workplace from Facebook and Jamaluddin Bakri, Group Chief Human Resource Officer, RHB Banking Group, came together for a panel discussion on the topic, “When Culture Meets Crisis”, moderated by Yasmin Taj, Senior Editor, People Matters .
