In recent months, companies have begun to implement their return to the office plans.  The process has been an adjustment for both companies and workers, and not always a smooth one.  Daily we are seeing reports of corporate leaders concerned about low office attendance levels, expressing a desire for work to return to the way it was before the pandemic, or ordering employees to return to the office.  Similarly, employees have expressed various concerns about return to the office policies, including the stress they can impose and their sometimes uneven implementation (e.g., workers return while bosses continue working remotely).  In some cases, employees are quitting their jobs rather than return, which is exacerbating existing talent shortages.

In this webcast, CAHRS Academic Director and William J. Conaty Professor Brad Bell will share insights from a recent CAHRS working group that explored how companies have been navigating the early days of the return to the office.  The session will highlight the lessons that have been learned so far and will examine their implications for the future of return to the office policies and practices.  

Attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions and comments during the webcast.
