Returning to the Office: How to Prepare Your Organization for the Future

June 22, 2023
Two session options: @ 10 am ET or 2 pm ET

The post-pandemic transition back to the office has been a rollercoaster ride for many organizations. For some, it’s gone smoothly, while others have faced unexpected challenges. And still yet, a lot of people are wondering if they’ve reached the “right” solution.

Odds are your organization is struggling with the whole returning to the office (RTO) process. If people don’t come in, the senior leadership is worried that the culture is suffering, and people aren’t really engaged. While those who are back in the office are openly resentful of having to spend the time and money on a commute and don’t really see the advantage to themselves.

In this engaging one-hour session, Wayne Turmel will take a deep dive into what we've learned over the past year, why return to office hasn't gone according to plan, and what the future holds for the workplace.
You'll gain valuable insight into why hybrid work isn't just a way to make the best of a bad situation, and why the future of hybrid work will be different from what we're experiencing today.

If you're curious about what's on the horizon for the workplace and want to be ready for what's next, this is a session you won't want to miss.

In this candid and enlightening 1-hour webinar you’ll learn:

  • The current state of the Return to the Office in North America
  • 4 reasons it hasn’t gone like we thought
  • Why we won’t tell you exactly what to do
  • Why Hybrid Work isn’t simply making the best of a bad situation
  • The factor that will make hybrid work completely different from the way it is now
  • What’s next to prepare your company for the future?

There are no absolutes in how your team should work. Being in the same place at the same time might be the right answer, although in the short term it could mean turnover and unhappy people. On the other hand, having people who are glad not to have a commute is not a compelling reason for not getting together when that’s the right answer for the project or customer.

No matter what the answer to that question is, asking it will help you be intentional and proactive in creating the culture you want your team to build. Join us for a powerful webinar where you ask the right questions and start taking steps to building the culture that you want and need in the future!
