Q4 is not delivering the normalcy or routines HR and business leaders hoped we would have by now.
Apple, Shutterstock, Lyft, and Indeed are just some of the companies that have recently pushed their return date for office workers into 2022. For many, this is the second or third target date for a return—demonstrating how critical it is to build flexibility into the planning process.
So, what are the critical elements of an elastic RTO plan that formalizes a hybrid working arrangement?
There are risk-management concerns around adjusting payroll for remote workers, bolstering cyber security for home networks, tax implications for employees working out of state, and so much more. And, there are the very real implications for DEIB, employee engagement, and company culture. Join Inspire as we welcome HR law and leadership experts to discuss:
- Planning when so much is in flux
- How HR can engage compliance, finance, and other colleagues to keep culture as a top priority in the shift to hybrid
- Implications you haven’t considered regarding hybrid workplaces
- Top opportunities and concerns HR leaders see in the shift to hybrid
