New Normal - How Employees Have Taken Back the Power

The new normal in the world has changed from "will the employee modify their life to work requirements?" To now, employers are modifying work requirements to employees' lives. Remote work has changed the job market in more ways than we can discuss in our allotted time.


We will discuss: work-life balance, employee happiness, working with dependents (children, aging parents, pets, yourself, etc.) as well as how the wages have shifted and how employees took back this power as well.

Resignations, DE&I and Remote Leadership, Oh My!

Organizations around the globe are undergoing massive disruption to their business models, while at the same time facing unprecedented turnover at all levels. This latest wave of resignations brings with it the challenge of recruiting, hiring, and onboarding a diverse set of leaders into remote & hybrid situations, where building trust at scale remains a constant challenge. Whether it’s an internal move or an external hire, new leadership can create internal tension in the organization, and for the incumbent, a sense of frustration around the reality of the role they were sold.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • How resignations, diversifying leadership and remote/hybrid onboarding are all interconnected

  • The impact on new leaders of having valuable insights into the goals, objectives & challenges the team is facing as they walk into their new role

  • How to eliminate the drama and loss of productivity that often accompanies new leadership assignments

  • How to create more equitable and inclusive onboarding experiences

  • Explore how to design a remote leader onboarding program that takes advantage of an intact work team’s skills and allows new leaders to hit the ground running

OD and People Analytics: Twins Separated at Birth?

Over the past few years, HR functions have made investments in both People (HR) Analytics and OD (often to drive change across the broader enterprise).  These functions typically are viewed as polar opposites – one is a “science” based on data and the other is an “art.”  But what if they’re more the same than different?  In this sessions, we’ll talk about the similarities of OD & PA and how you can integrate the best of both into your strategic HR work.
