2020 was most certainly a challenging year for businesses worldwide and the commitment, flexibility and hard work of our incredible Bar2 team is the fundamental reason why we continue to run successfully today. This period of extreme uncertainty introduced remote working to our daily lives and called on our teams to demonstrate their adaptability, reliability and trust in our business to continue to function as efficiently as possible throughout the ongoing pandemic.
Through this transitional period, conversations surrounding how we lead, inspire, empower and reward our amazing team for their continued support has been at the forefront for our leaders as we move through this cultural shift. With a stronger focus on employee work-life balance; creating happy, confident and empowered people is our goal. We strive to establish and prioritise people’s personal goals; to inspire them to be confident in their opinions and contribution towards important conversations; and to coach them through their career journeys - encouraging recognition and incentives for achieving those goals along the way.
