Hybrid Workplace Models 2021

Online: Wednesday, December 15, 2021 | Time: 12:00-2:15pm ET / 9:00-11:15am PT

Sharing insights to better support teamwork, engagement, and productivity in the today’s workplace

Recent events have permanently shifted the way we work and live. The pandemic overturned many traditional workplace theories and highlighted the fact that work can be accomplished effectively and efficiently even when working remotely. It also gave employees more control over their work and life balance. However, many would also argue that in-person collaboration is always more effective than the alternative.  

As we move into the post-pandemic recovery phase, many organizations are now working towards implementing a hybrid workforce strategy that is easily flexible and adaptable with changing circumstances. Organizations across Canada will have to realign the workforce on a digital, physical, and cultural level and re-engineer a work environment that factors in the in-home culture of flexibility and in-office culture of collaboration. As HR leaders prepare for the next normal, what are the critical policies, strategies, tools, and technologies that can help organizations prepare for the challenges that come with the permanent shift to hybrid work?  

To help you in this journey, Public Sector Network’s Hybrid Workplace Models will bring together public sector leaders to discuss key challenges, lessons learned and best practices of how you can effectively manage talent and grow your workforce in a hybrid world.
