    Managing Employee Transitions from Remote Work

    The emergency pivot to remote work is coming to and end. What can HR do to ease the pain and stress of a transition back to a “new normal”? What are the risks and values that should be weighed and how can HR be a strategic partner to the C-Suite in balancing mission needs with employee wants and fears?

    Dennis Dashiell is a local organizational development consultant and executive coach with expertise in change management, employee mental health and operationalizing organizational values. We will discuss the key polarities of:

    • Transition and Change Management

    • Employee Retention and Recruitment Considerations

    • Clear Expectations in any New Normal of Remote or Hybrid Work

    • Mood Leadership

    • Equity vs Fairness in Remote and Flex-Work Policies

    • C-Suite HR Consulting & Coaching
