Webinar: Returning to the Office and Managing Hybrid and Remote Teams: Benchmarking to Best Practices for Competitive Advantage


Presenter:
Dr. Gleb Tsipursky
Date Recorded:
8 September 2021

OVERVIEW

In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you will dramatically improve your ability to return to in-office work by benchmarking to best practices. Many leaders have a preference for in-person work. Yet research conclusively demonstrates that those employees who can do so have a strong preference to work remotely much of their time, and a large minority all of their time. Moreover, remote workers show substantial productivity gains, cost savings, and risk mitigation. Mental blindspots called cognitive biases often inhibit leaders in seeing this clear conclusion. The best approach to returning to the office involves a hybrid-first model with some limited full-time remote options. Doing so will enable organizations to excel in retention and recruitment, boost productivity, re-energize company culture, gain substantial cost savings, and manage a wide variety of risks. This presentation offers case studies and best practices that you need to make the most effective and successful return to the office, so as to maximize your competitive advantage in the most important resource: your people.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about research on employee preferences and productivity metrics for in-office, hybrid, and remote work
  • Identify where your organization might benefit from refining its planning for returning to the office to excel in retention and recruitment, boost productivity, re-energize company culture, gain substantial cost savings, and manage a wide variety of risks
  • Assess how your plans for permanent post-pandemic work arrangements benchmarks to best practices
  • Develop a plan to implement best practices for returning to the office and permanent post-pandemic work arrangement in your organization
