Making "Back To Work", Work Reengaging "Work From Home" Employees
Many surveys report that employees rather like being able to work from home, at least some of the time. However, influential C-level executives are openly calling for a return to the office. This is supported by multiple surveys indicating that while the forced "working from home" experiment appears to have better results than feared, managers want to begin seeing their subordinates in person. Many companies will doubtlessly try to accommodate employees by allowing some type of hybrid working arrangements. Some companies are actively studying alternative office arrangements such as satellite work locations or "hot swapping" desks and offices. However, since human beings are social animals, the likelihood that will stay away from congregating in their places of work is probably low.
The challenge for C-level management, especially the VP of Human Resources, is to re-attract their employees sooner, rather than later. Over the past two decades employees and employers faced four interlinked HRM concerns, burnout, work life balance, employee engagement, and employee experience. All are directly related to employee satisfaction and will be central to the return of "work from work" policies.
HEC Paris will address these issues in a webinar on 24 June 2021. Professor Michael Segalla, Ph.D. will discuss the topic of his latest book, "International Perspectives on Employee Engagement" and will be joined by Caroline Guillaumin, Vice President, HR and Communications, Société Générale, to examine what companies can do create the future of work. The interview will be moderated by Professor Anne Michaut, Ph.D., Associate Dean for Education Track and Pedagogy.
Combining academic insights with the implementation challenges faced global firms will ensure a lively discussion. We invite you to sign-up soon for this webinar.
