EVENT DATE: FRIDAY, JUNE 12TH, from 1-3 PM EASTERN
THIS PROGRAM COMES WITH THE RECORDING, WHICH YOU CAN WATCH AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT FOR 1 YEAR!
Employees (and leaders) have lots of anxieties about coming back into the office. Will it be safe? Am I comfortable expressing my concerns? Why can’t I stay remote? How do I get back into a routine?
A recent study found that 45% of companies are already struggling with workers who are reluctant to return to their workplaces! Employee fears and ambitions, and issues like childcare, transportation, and health issues, will all figure into an employee’s willingness to return to the office.
If you want to manage and quell those anxieties, you need a detailed blueprint to address those concerns, from the physical to the emotional. You need to signal to them that you’re entering this next phase on a sound footing. And to get your employees back to the office, you’ll need to know and understand your people like never before.
You'll be getting real-life examples of checklists, decision-trees, surveys, staffing plans, and more from top companies around the world!
