Return to Work

We’re at a moment of historic change in the world of work. Even as organizations have implemented a variety of hybrid working models to support a combination of remote and on-site employees, the return to the workplace models continue to evolve. Communicating a solid return-to-workplace plan to your employees is an ongoing challenge.

According to McKinsey, 68% of companies haven’t communicated a clear vision for post-pandemic work, with serious negative consequences on employee productivity. In contrast, those organizations that have effectively communicated a plan are seeing outsized benefits—their employees are five times more productive because they have the clarity and confidence that vision provides.

Watch this free webinar where Priya Bates, founder of Inner Strength Communication, will show you how to reduce employee anxiety through the development and communication of detailed hybrid work policies, guidelines and expectations.

Leadership, supported by their Internal Communications and HR teams, must communicate a solid plan for post-pandemic work or suffer serious productivity losses.

 In this FREE webinar, you will learn: 

  • How to redefine the role and purpose of Internal Communications in engaging employees regardless of where they work
  • The most important points to consider when planning your return-to-workplace strategy
  • How to build a comprehensive return-to-the-workplace communications plan
  • How people-focused and omnichannel communications capabilities can support your hybrid work plan
