Making Hybrid Work Great

Pragmatic solutions for a new age of getting things done

America’s C-Suites are contending with the greatest labor revolution in the last two decades, a work-in-progress, living lab for how we get things done. When the pandemic shut down offices and many businesses went remote overnight, most corporate leaders—and workers—assumed the change was just a temporary fix for a world in crisis.

Accustomed to daily flexibility, work-life balance and the time saved commuting, employees have made it clear they want a more flexible work environment moving forward.

Now, many CEOs and their executive teams are grappling with how to put work back together in a way that keeps them competitive while allowing them to hold on to their talent.

This exclusive program, created in collaboration with Steelcase, will showcase emerging best practices for this new world of hybrid work in a unique in-person day of learning for CEOs, CHROs, CFOs and CIOs contending with new workplace strategies, implications of evolving employee expectations and competition for talent.
