  20. WHY is because… The company has identified six "core behaviors" that it hopes will make a success of the approach: Focus on outputs – it is shifting its focus to the work staff do rather than the time they sit at their desk. Communicate effectively – employees will need to keep in touch with colleagues throughout the working day, co-ordinate with teammates to ensure they are not all out of the office at the same time and be in the office more than they are elsewhere. Use technology – staff will be empowered to work in the environment best suited to the task at hand and use technology where it is more efficient than meeting in person Set your boundaries – employees will be encouraged to take breaks and switch off but will be expected to "work as hard and as well" as they always have. Recognize we are all different – Publicis Groupe has reminded its employees to be sensitive to their colleagues' needs and permit all "reasonable requests" unless they are incompatible with the task being performed. Trust one another – this asks managers to trust their staff not to take advantage of the new approach and for staff to trust that the people managing them will not hold it against them if they work flexibly.
