A recent national study indicates that even post-COVID, about half of the workforce is either working from home, on a hybrid schedule, or angling to achieve one or the other. 

If you are one of the 24% of the workforce that has yet to finalize a return/remote/hybrid work plan it’s time to get creative. Even if you’re part of the 34% of the workplace companies that devised and implemented a plan, maybe it’s time to revise the plan and take a look at best practices.

Here’s another thought. Around 47% of organizations believe they can reduce capital, operations and overhead expenses by creating a remote/hybrid workforce plan. 

If you fall into any of these buckets, consider attending this training  to mindfully plan and consider implementation of best practices in designing and managing remote and/or hybrid employees

Course Level - Basic to Intermediate

Who Should Attend

Anyone grappling with the changing workforce post-COVID, and those experiencing challenges managing expectations for stay and new hires

Why Should You Attend

If you or your organization are struggling with the best way to navigate a hybrid or fully remote workspace, join our training session for best practices and creative solutions. Without a viable program, you can expect to see continued or diminished return-on-investment (ROI), decreased productivity in employees, and worse, attrition or unscheduled terminations, which could impact day-to-day operations. That, and managers have a high probability of grappling with employee relations issues that might escalate without thoughtful and creative practices.

Topic Background

It’s clear that the pandemic transformed how many organizations operate. Remote hardware and IT best practices took on unprecedented importance as work from home became commonplace. Technology experts say their companies are still utilizing hybrid mechanisms and, in many cases, tech innovations have made their operations more flexible and secure.

Organizations were forced to embrace technology to make hybrid operations as easy and automated as possible at their clusters and we welcomed the virtual and cloud spaces, wholeheartedly.

But, what about people and culture management? How is that working? What are the gaps? Where are the levers? And, how can we grapple with the increasing burdens in maintaining operations, while balancing and navigating employee needs?
