Recognizing & Engaging Employees in the Era of Hybrid Work

In the current world of work, organizations are faced with many decisions about managing employee expectations in a way that balances the needs of employees with those of the organization. Some 42% of employees worked from home during the pandemic and now over 40% of companies have asked them to return to work in the office. But 61% of those employees say they prefer to work from home indefinitely How can your association best mitigate this situation? Find out what it takes to continue to successfully manage virtual workers while allowing others to return to the office. Learn the pitfalls and successful tools and techniques other organizations are successfully using on this topic, and increase your confidence for effectively getting work done through workers wherever they are located.

You will also learn:

  • The recent research, trends, and practices shaping the hybrid workforce

  • Successful strategies & techniques and best practices for recognizing & engaging hybrid employees

  • How to keep your staff and organization motivated during these transitional times
