The reality of working remotely every single day alongside your kids will be a “steep learning curve” for a lot of people. This post shares tips for getting things done and being there for your children.
Dalhousie recognizes the challenges many of our employees will have balancing new work routines while managing childcare. We encourage all employees to find a balance and routine that works for them and to reach out for support through HR or EFAP, as needed.

All the cultures are traditionally divided into collectivistic and individualistic. As research shows, people in individualistic cultures prefer a low-context communication style and are more concerned with their own ‘face’. It means that they value direct and straightforward communication without being afraid to offend others. This low-context communication style is opposed to a high-context style in collectivistic cultures, where people are concerned with another people’s face more than with their own public self-image. As a result, they avoid direct confrontation and value indirectness in communication. In these societies, what is not said is more important than what is actually said, and nonverbal clues play a crucial role in communication, adding meaning to the conversation.

Healthy people and healthy workplaces
Huge thanks to my very special guest Janice MacInnis (30 mins.), Manager of Organizational Health at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. She enhances the health of employees and the health of Dalhousie as a workplace. Improving the wellness and experience of employees over the 10 years she has been in this role also connects well with her personally. She has dedicated herself to self-improvement and readily shares her learnings and failures with others.
