A year of global pandemic, civil unrest and political schisms created unprecedented stress in the US and around the world. As people processed a barrage of conflicting news and opinion, they were isolated from their work environments, where they normally interact with a cross-section of viewpoints. They were left to consume information that felt comfortable and to correspond via Facebook and other channels with like-minded people. Opinions and emotions calcified, creating deep cultural fault lines.
As employees return to in-person work, their beliefs, emotions, stresses, fears, political points of view and pandemic isolation impacts return with them.  Employers must create work environments that ensure engagement, inclusion, productivity and safety.
In this webcast, William J. Conaty Professor and CAHRS Academic Director, Brad Bell, and the Director of Cornell’s Executive Masters in Human Resource Management (EMHRM) Program and former GE HR Executive, Susan Beauregard, will share insights from a CAHRS working group on how companies are navigating these fault lines.  There will be an opportunity for attendees to share their own experiences and ask questions during the webcast.
