This event has passed.

As the pandemic continues to have an impact to our lives in varying degrees, the sudden shift to hybrid work model has left companies in search of their perfect plan. We all learned that change is the new normal and that the old way of working is not coming back, but we still need to discover what is the new approach when it comes to the hybrid work in terms of place, process & people.

Leaders are called to find new business models and strategies, innovative solutions to recruit, onboard, retain and grow talent, to manage the home office and reorganize the company’s one, to offer flexibility and comply with the legal and tax regulations.

After all, there are many factors to consider: What’s the right mix of remote and in-person work? How did the employee’s perception about work change? Is there a new profile of the candidates that needs to be addressed? Moreover, how do you stop your teams from becoming unmotivated and how they will embrace the company’s culture? It there a secret recipe for productive and happy employees? Last, but not least, how do you upskill your managers for the new challenges?

We continue our Business Mixer series of events with one dedicated to the new hybrid work model analyzed from three different angles:

  • Place
  • Process
  • People

We invite you to join our experts and your peers in finding the answers to your current concerns on this topic.

Transform with Technology – shaping the future of real estate

The pandemic has provided us with an unparalleled opportunity, even a necessity, to rethink the built environment. The technologies that are now available – and others in the process of being developed – are set to radically reshape how we construct, interact with and use buildings.
As the real estate industry rises to the challenge of delivering a significantly decarbonized built environment, technology is likely to be the single biggest catalyst for green progress.
Technology will also be essential as we seek to better manage space and its impact on people. Now more than ever, the health and well-being of the workforce are paramount to business success. The new workplace, aided by technology, calls for more effective and dynamic use of space.
Technology applications across the built environment:

• building level (sustainable buildings and places)

• portfolio level (healthy places and portfolios)

• design and construction

• property & facilities operations

Say NO to burnout. How to identify and help treat burnout for your employees.
Stress management and burnout for the management teams

Burnout keeps building for employees after a year of pandemic-related anxiety and isolation, heavier workloads and little to no time off. Studies show that the number of employees who accuse burnout symptoms is bigger in 2020-2021 than years before. Just one example: more than four in 10 employees (44%) say they are more burned out on the job today compared to a year ago, according to a new survey of 2,800 workers from global staffing firm Robert Half.
We are facing a new challenge – a fourth COVID wave and we better start preparing for now and for later. Because the effects of the pandemic will continue to roll out in the following years.
Through the workshop held by Regina Maria you’ll learn first hot to balance your level of stress and burnout, and second how to identify and treat it for your employees. You’ll find out more about:

• Stress and burnout symptoms

• Stress and burnout management for the management teams

• Managing stress for your employees

• Creating a suitable environment for stressful or complex periods

Great Attrition’ or ‘Great Attraction’? The choice is yours (based on a McKinsey article)

A record number of employees are quitting or thinking about doing so. Organizations that take the time to learn why—and act thoughtfully—will have an edge in attracting and retaining talent.
