How to Use Research-Based Best Practices to Build a Remote Work Strategy that Works for All
Approximately 30% of the workers in a January 2021 McKinsey & Company survey indicated they are likely to switch jobs if required to return to an office full-time, and over 50% reported they want to work from home 3 or more days per week.

In this session, we’ll explore the full range of considerations and difficult conversations to be had related to crafting (or revising) a remote work plan that best supports the diverse needs of both your employees and your business operations.

As a result of this session, you will be able to:
1. Explain why it can be helpful to recognize that remote and virtual work are not new
2. Explore the workplace culture question – what is culture, why it's important -- and does it require physical proximity to thrive?
3. Discuss the office/remote divide that can form in hybrid work arrangements – and how to effectively collaborate and help teams stay connected while working remotely.
4. Offer initial tips for assessing your:
• People Needs – understanding needs across different departments, roles and individual circumstances
• Resources and support – discuss what technology and training is needed, with special attention to equity issues
• Managerial readiness – preparing for common mindset and skill development challenges among new managers of remote and hybrid teams
• Communication practices – discuss how to provide the right mix of methods, messages and boundaries to keep team engagement and satisfaction high, while preventing stress, burnout
• Meeting design – key considerations to planning meaningful meetings
• Leadership bias - how to lead difficult conversations related to leadership biases and remote work
5. Discuss the importance of explaining why & being ready to iterate your remote work strategy as needs shift
