“The end is in sight (we hope), but what is next? Challenges facing employees and employers moving forward”
Dr. Duxbury’s talk will use data from the 2021 Employee Wellbeing in Times of Covid-19 survey to outline the challenges employees and employers are likely to face in the next several years. Among the topics she’ll address are: the challenges associated with implementing hybrid work arrangements and the questions that need to be addressed to make such arrangements work; and how to support employees who have survived the pandemic but are now exhausted, burned out and need support. The talk will also present data showing that even when the pandemic has become endemic, companies will still need to manage continuous disruptive change. As such, the talk will offer suggestions on how and what leaders and managers can do to help their companies, their employees, and themselves.
