Aug 11 - Remote/Socially Distanced Workers: Boost Employee Engagement, Productivity & Innovation

11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. PT
Virtual HR Round Table

As shelter-in-place orders begin to ease, employers face tough decisions and weigh options of whether or not to reopen or continue remote work and socially distance arrangements. It is no surprise that COVID-19 has impacted how businesses conduct themselves tremendously. With no signs of relief, employers will still face many challenges in keeping a remote and socially distanced workplace engaged and active. Join us for a discussion around the following themes as it relates to the age of remote workers.

  • How do we foster a workplace culture of connection while social distancing or working remotely?
  • How do we effectively engage a remote workforce? We will explore ways to shift employees’ mindset of how we work while creating connection and accountability.
  • How do we effectively measure and enhance productivity in a COVID-19 environment?
  • What are the best practices for providing performance feedback in the remote environment?
  • How do we use innovation to support our culture of connection?
  • How do we address the cultural impact of COVID-19?
  • How do we ensure that employees feel safe in a post COVID-19 environment?
