Hybrid Work - Working Together Apart

Is a Reset Necessary?

More detailed information

In this captivating keynote, Isabel De Clercq explores the challenges and opportunities of hybrid work, presenting a refreshing perspective beyond the hype. While remote work has brought numerous benefits, it is not all sunshine and rainbows. Recent research reveals that hybrid work brings about digital overload and makes it harder for individuals to disconnect after work.

Furthermore, the shift to hybrid work threatens knowledge sharing, especially among younger employees who no longer have access to the rich, informal conversations in the physical workplace. It's clear that a reset is needed.

Is it possible for organisations to establish clear guidelines without being overly controlling? How can we ensure lasting connections between individuals who see each other less frequently? What valuable lessons can we learn from other organisations' experiences?

In this thought-provoking keynote, Isabel De Clercq empowers organisations, leaders and employees to make hybrid work after COVID a resounding success. Drawing from extensive research, she provides practical insights and actionable strategies, steering clear of clichés and empty buzzwords.
