"Post-Pandemic Work and Workplace Virtual Working Group Series"
Session 4: Resetting the Culture Post-Pandemic
May 18, 2021 | 1:00-2:30pm (EST)
                           
As we get closer to the resolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies are focusing greater attention on preparing for the post-pandemic reality.  Indeed, a recent CAHRS survey revealed that post-pandemic work and workplace planning is a top priority item for HR leaders heading into 2021. This CAHRS Series of working groups is aimed at helping our partner companies think through the challenges and opportunities associated with the upcoming transition. Attendees to these sessions include individuals responsible for different aspects of their organization’s post-pandemic work and workplace planning.    

In this fourth working group in the series, Professor Rebecca Kehoe will lead a discussion about how companies are planning to reset their cultures to adapt to the post-pandemic environment.  Some of the questions we may address include:

•    How do you expect you culture to have changed from pre- to post-pandemic?
•    What cultural challenges do you anticipate post-pandemic and how are you planning to address them?
•    What steps are you taking to ensure you don’t lose any positive cultural gains that have emerged during the pandemic?

About our CAHRS Series of Working Groups
The CAHRS Series of working groups are designed to examine a particular theme or topic from a number of different perspectives. The other sessions included in the “Post-Pandemic Work and Workplace” working group series are listed below and can be found in the events section of the CAHRS website.  Individuals are encouraged to sign up for as many of the sessions in the series as match their interests and availability. 

•    Preparing for the Return to the Office | February 25, 2021,
•    Supporting Employees through the Post-Pandemic Transition | March 25, 2021,
•    Managing Hybrid Work Arrangements | April 21, 2021

Our virtual working groups are kept small (15-20 participants) to allow for rich discussion and best practice sharing.  Given the limited size of each session, we ask that you only register for a session if you will be able to attend for the duration.  Prior to the session, attendees should give some thought to the questions included in the description, so they are prepared to share with the group.  We also strongly prefer that participants be on camera during the session to allow for more engaging interaction.  If for some reason after you sign up for the working group, something comes up last minute (especially while many of us are working from home), it would be great to get even a last minute e-mail advising us that you cannot attend as we sometimes have a waiting list.
