Dallas office managing partner Michael Newman was featured in DMagazine’s “Executive Perspectives,” where he discussed how Foley responded to the pandemic with remote work protocols, pivoted to assist clients with their business needs during the pandemic and kept the office community going through virtual programming.
Newman noted that the office’s virtual engagement program, spearheaded by Dallas office event manager Mary Gall, was critical to navigating through these unprecedented times.
“We’ve seen that communication and engagement is critical to maintaining a sense of normalcy during these highly unusual times. There’s nothing more important than communicating, actually over-communicating, when there is so much uncertainty and anxiety. Honest and forthright communication is always appreciated, even when the news isn’t positive. As for social engagement, we all need some fun and a little distraction during these long days at home and with the endless news cycle of bad news. Providing the troops with some fun and interesting home challenges, frequent wellness opportunities, group visits, and happy hours has been well received and something that has brought our office closer together, even though we find ourselves working apart,” he said.
