Inclusion is critical in planning for the next phase of work —whether it’s hybrid, work-from-anywhere, or movement toward a full return to office (RTO).
Some employees cannot wait to return to the office for a sense of community and purpose, where others dread losing the flexibility to spend more time with loved ones. Each person’s preference and needs depend on many factors, including: a sense of belonging and psychological safety in the workplace, responsibilities at home, health status, age, seniority, and more.
So, how can leaders approach the hybrid environment and the future of work with an inclusive lens?
Join us as we discuss:
- Inclusive decision-making when planning for next steps
- Creating a sense of belonging for employees across all locations in a hybrid environment.
- Employee mental health strategies and tactics for the transition to the next phase
- How managers can promote team-building in a hybrid or remote environment
