As more businesses think about their office reopening plans, it’s important not to forget the many takeaways a year of remote work has provided. While some workers experienced a stressful year working from home, many others thrived, preferring the flexibility remote work offered.
Reopening an office for an organization requires so much more than creating rules regarding health and sanitization logistics, particularly after a year when the perception of work has undergone dramatic change. Every employee, from executive to intern, plays a critical role in creating a better, more inclusive, workplace.
In this webinar PRNEWS will provide attendees with guides and instruction on creating, and communicating the changes toward, a better workplace.
- Your role in creating a more inclusive workplace as an executive, manager or employee
- Becoming an ally for others through recruitment, retention and mentorship
- How to carry over successful practices created during the pandemic
- Empathetically helping colleagues navigate a return to office life
