Hybrid, Now What? Keys to Adjusting to the Hybrid Work Model

COVID-19 has fundamentally shifted society, and it is clear that organizations will not be going back to the way things were before the pandemic. With that said, we can’t expect the way people worked during the height of pandemic to be the way everyone will work moving beyond lockdowns and into the future. As a result, businesses are beginning to navigate their new paths towards the next normal. What are the current and future challenges companies face? What are the absolute critical issues that organizations must tackle to be successful? How do leaders get employees to buy in? How do organizations know if what they are doing is working or needs adjusting? Ultimately, successful companies need to have a plan and follow it, however, this is just a starting point and not an end point. The key is to manage the process effectively and efficiently. In this presentation Professor John Trougakos, one of the world’s foremost experts on the future of work, brings together cutting edge scientific research and industry leading best practices to provide insights to help organizations, leaders, and employees better understand, and succeed, in the new world of hybrid work.

Mastering the Modern Meeting: Communicating Effectively in a Hybrid World

Meetings are expensive, numerous, and have been difficult to get right. As they have morphed onto the small screen, challenges of a different sort emerged. Now that we are experiencing the hybrid working world with some people in person and the rest on-screen, we need some new perspectives to keep meetings working for and not against us. This webinar explores good reasons to have a meeting, how to decide on what form it should take, and how to encourage participation from all, no matter where they happen to be.

Ergonomics Considerations for Hybrid Work Spaces

As we prepare for the eventual return to work, many organizations are considering hybrid working models.
With hybrid working models, many employees may find themselves using temporary workstations on the days they attend work in person. While this concept makes sense for financial reasons and for the flexibility it provides employees, there are some concerns from the point of view of ergonomics and human factors.
In this presentation we will discuss
• Potential pitfalls related to the use of shared office workstations
• How to balance the need for proper ergonomic set-ups in both home and onsite workspaces
• Strategies to optimize the health, wellbeing, and productivity of employees in this new model of work

3:30 PM – 4:00 PM EST

The Future of Communication

As businesses increasingly go digital or hybrid, pandemic-era restrictions have forced innovation and adaptation, the way we work is in a near-constant state of flux. But one thing is for certain, the future of work includes embracing hybrid collaborations and technology can help us to do that. In this webinar, we will look at the new conference room and how technology will help in making it more inclusive in relations to meetings and meeting collaborations.

4:30 PM – 5:00 PM EST
Webinar Presented by Staples Facilities Team
Assessing Your Workplace and The Rise of Pack & Ship

The way we work has drastically changed, causing workplaces to adjust, adapt and search out new products and ways to do things. More business is generated through e-commerce setting up the need for pack and ship products to make the job easier. At the same time we are facing new requirements in the workplace to keep our associates and customers safe in our businesses. In this webinar the Staples Professional Facilities team will share ways to improve your pack and ship processes and talk about some of the changes we see in pack and ship or e-commerce packaging with our customers. We will also discuss the evolutions in cleaning and disinfection, the changing needs with respect to personal protective equipment (PPE) such as mask and how Rapid Antigen Testing fits into your business. We will talk about other areas in which businesses should make upgrades and changes to continue to protect people. How is your cleaning being scheduled, how are you ensuring clean air in busy rooms or offices, what can you do to cut down on the amount of cleaning in your building and how can you maximize the dollars you spend? Join us as we discuss key solutions for businesses to consider for 2022.
