Hybrid Working - What can we do to make it work and prevent risks? Now that there is some light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel, this raises the question whether we are really going back to “normal”. Can we go back into the office? And if we can, will we?

The past year has shown that technically nothing stands in the way of working from home. In the trade off companies are now making on the ideal office-home balance, efficiency, costs and individual employee-needs seem to be leading. However there are several intangible assets that make an important contribution to corporate culture and corporate success and risk management that need to be taken into the equation. E.g the value of random encounters, creativity and the feeling of being connected as a basic need of many employees.

Therefore it is wise to consider not only colleagues’ personal preferences, costs and efficiency, but also look into how hybrid working will influence the company’s strategic goals. The ideal balance is a strategic decision.

Making that balance work properly, requires not only technology but a lot more. If the new normal is nothing but the digital version of the old normal, then that is a missed opportunity. In this webinar we will discuss how hybrid working influences corporate culture, employee behaviour and risks.

Additionally, we will provide some practical recommendations on what it takes from management to adequately steer a hybrid organisation.

The event will be held over Zoom. Please ensure you have access to Zoom in advance of the event taking place. Zoom is available on all PCs, laptops, tablets and Apple or Android devices. The link to join the event will be emailed to registered members on the day of the event.

The registration for the event will close once we reach capacity or at 3pm the day before the event. 

There are no CPD hours for this event
