A conversation: What work looks like during COVID-19

Tell us a bit about yourself

When

Apr 1, 2020

10am - 11am PT

We are living in a time where going to work looks different than it did a month ago. Definitions of productivity, workplace communities, and thriving professionally are changing as we know it, and it's time to adapt quickly.

At Mode, one of our values is that we do not work alone. To put this in practice, we’d like to invite you to participate in a discussion with us about new work life in the time of COVID-19—including what’s working and what isn’t and different ideas to do so successfully for all as we figure out how to navigate this new world.

In this conversation, we’ll moderate a forum to discuss its challenges and share helpful practices our community has put in place to address them. We’re excited to hear from you and ask that you please leave a question or tip you’d like to share in the session.

We’ll discuss

  • What has worked for Mode and other companies during this time of transition
  • How we’ve maintained a sense of community on our team during this time
  • What has helped maintain accountability and ownership among our employees
  • How asynchronous work has changed the way we communicate about our work
