As more people become vaccinated against COVID-19, and businesses begin to reopen, a return to the office will be the plan for many organizations. However, while some workers experienced a stressful year working from home, many others thrived, preferring the flexibility and space for productivity.

Reopening an office for an organization requires so much more than creating rules regarding health and sanitization logistics, particularly after an entire year where the personality and perception of work has undergone dramatic change. Every employee, from executive to intern, plays a role in creating a better workplace. How can everyone contribute to an even greater work experience?

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 equitable workplace as an executive, manager or employee
  • Becoming a DEI advocate 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
