The Data Standard

Using tech to foster innovation remotely with Sam Strong
Sam Strong, Director, West Coast at Keyrus sits down with TDS to discuss fostering innovation in a remote workspace.

Episode Summary

In today’s episode of The Data Standard, Darren and Sam explored how distanced teams can accelerate innovation. Figuring out ways to foster creativity and collaboration in a remote work environment can be challenging. Diving into the world of data science, Sam and Darren discuss the challenges of working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Key takeaways of this podcast are:
  1. Employees can be productive anywhere, not just at the office. During the pandemic, productive team collaboration has reached new heights using remote collaboration technology. Furthermore, the individual focus has remained strong.
  2. Although team collaboration has been a success, the move to remote working has impacted people’s ability to connect with one another on a more personal level. This also flows into a weaker connection to company culture and challenges for learning and development.
  3. Flexibility and choice to work from anywhere are accelerating, with the vast majority of employees believing that their company should embrace some level of working from home. Positively, employees feel trusted by their manager to carry out their role remotely.
