With Covid-19 restrictions lifted, HR now needs to focus on getting employees back to the workplace and meeting the challenge of creating a hybrid working model that supports and facilitates inclusion, collaboration, engagement and trust.
In XpertHR’s 60-minute webinar on Thursday 9 September 2021, Victoria Lewis, CEO of byrne-dean, dealt with the numerous challenges posed by hybrid working to teamwork, informal collaboration, diversity, coaching and mentoring, and performance management. The session covers:
- dealing with reluctant returners, those who are unsure about returning to the workplace, or those who see no reason to do so;
- the conscious effort needed to ensure those day-to-day interactions create an inclusive hybrid culture;
- recognising and dealing with the fact that the hybrid lens adds another layer to “difference”, as people will have experienced the pandemic differently and will experience the new way of work differently based on a wide range of factors; and
- avoiding the risk in the hybrid workplace to the diversity gains of recent years.
The webinar includes a Q&A session. Watch on-demand.
