The Great Reconnection Webinar
Much has been said over the last year about the Great Resignation, the pivot to remote working, and the ever-shifting return to work policy misfires. However, too little has been done to address the fundamental need of workers who are coming back to the office: reconnection. Leaders have an opportunity to reconnect workers to their colleagues, their customers, and the very purpose of the organization itself, but many don’t know how to do this.  

In our latest season of our podcast Workplace Stories, The Great Reconnection, we explored how leaders should approach this work. In this special end-of-season webinar, we will discuss what we learned as a result of these conversations and how leaders can apply those insights to their companies today. Join hosts Dani Johnson, Stacia Garr, and Chris Pirie, along with special guests Amy Lavoie, VP of People Success at Torch to recap the season’s best moments and unpack our biggest learnings together.

Oct 12, 2022 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
