From Remote to Hybrid

Speakers: Mikkel Lyngbo Nielsen (Ericsson), Andrew Lewis (Telia), Stefan Moritz (McKinsey / Veryday), Julia Klier (McKinsey)

How leaders can combine the best of how we used to work with the best of how we will have to work in the future. How should the hybrid office and digital workplace of the future be organized? What capabilities are needed to realize this goal? What is the roadmap to get there in a holistic and efficient way?

During the current pandemic, we have experienced a dramatic acceleration of trends shaping the expectations and new routines of employees for working together. In our webinar, we will re-cap the learnings from our July session on employee experience and on our approach to shape the future together with employees. We will also share new insights on how to use the current window of opportunity to activate the organization and take concrete next steps to organize the future of hybrid work.

The world as we know it has changed. The new world of work demands speed and flexibility. HR leaders will need to enable the business to lead from the edges, adopt the right technologies and drive a new vision of organisational culture. The key to success will be in how the function and profession pivot from their legacy role of being a steward of employment to being a steward of work and the new employee experience. In this webcast we will explore actions being taken to rethink, reshape and enhance the impact of HR, as well as hear from some companies at the forefront of this reinvention.

Re-imagining Organizations of the Future

The organization of the future is taking shape in the moves that companies are making now. In this 1-hour virtual forum, our lead thinkers Dickie Steele and Alex di Leonardo will explore how leaders can accelerate their organizations’  journeys toward becoming not only faster but also better for customers, employees, and society at large – with three mutually reinforcing areas together providing glimpses into what a “next normal” organization could look like. While being management imperatives in “normal” times, right now they have become test beds for intense experimentation and soul searching, as they get to the core questions that organizations must always seek to answer for themselves: Who are we? How do we operate? How will we grow?
