Includes a Live Event on 09/21/2021 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
With the pandemic in our rearview mirror and a new road ahead, we are asking, “What will the employee experience look like in 2022?” We have heard of the challenges and opportunities of the “RTO” (return to office). But beyond that, what did we do well during the shutdown, what worked, what did not work, and which changes that were accelerated will we keep in place as best practices moving forward? As we adapt to the “new now” what are our Human Resource Business leaders doing to ensure a positive employee experience? Join us for a best practices discussion from industry leaders.
