Prepare for the Transformed Workplace: HR's Role in Training, Policy and Strategic Planning

Wednesday July 14 at 2PM ET

Many organizations have started or are preparing to return employees to onsite work. Regardless of whether employers choose to bring all their workers back to the workplace, opt to have an all-remote workforce or create a hybrid arrangement that allows for both onsite and remote work, the structure and norms of work that that existed before the pandemic may no longer be right or effective post-pandemic. HR is essential in assisting both leadership and employees in this transformation through training, creating and implementing new policies and strategically planning for the long road ahead.

In this 60-minute webinar, Michael Chichester, shareholder in Littler's Detroit office, and Marissa Dragoo, principal in Sacramento, both members of Littler's Global Workplace Transformation Initiative, will explore key issues that HR professionals and people managers need to know to ready their organizations for the changing world of work.

Participants will learn:

  • How to identify and solve the initial challenges of setting up the post-pandemic workplace and long-term challenges for ensuring productivity;
  • How to train managers and supervisors to manage and support both onsite and remote employees in the changing workplace;
  • What return-to-workplace policies are needed and what to consider when putting them in place; and
  • HR's role in addressing employees' concerns and anxiety about coming back to the office.
