As organizations begin to return to the office and/or continue supporting remote work environments, they will need to support hybrid teams that introduce a new set of challenges and opportunities. Further, many organizations are faced with reuniting their workforce in person for the first time since the pandemic and may need to help employees navigate everything from overcoming social anxiety, new safety concerns, and shifted expectations. In this session, we will collectively set intentions for a successful return to the workplace that supports hybrid teams and a variety of new commutes in the new normal.
Our guiding questions include:
• How do you address inequity and tension between working situations?
• How can we set intentions for returning to the workforce?
• How do you bridge the connection gap and navigate the initial social awkwardness of returning to work?
• What is the new role of the office and how can it support well-being? • The employee experience of returning to work?
Building on groundbreaking research by both i4cp and Rob Cross, the Employee Well-Being Exchange is a peer-driven community working group that explores the relational sources of well-being, how personal networks impact this, and the tools to support individual performance and well-being.
