In this new world of hybrid work, HR professionals are challenged with having to create effective return-to-work strategies, while advocating for health and safety, and ensuring an overall positive employee experience.  Join Michael as they talk with Elisabeth Giammona, HR Business Partner at Envoy about her experience developing hybrid work strategies and learnings from Envoy customers. 

Envoy’s workplace platform is used in over 14,000 locations worldwide by companies such as Slack, Pinterest, and Warby Parker. Elisabeth understands from these customers that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to return-to-work plans. It’s important to consider:

  • Not only onboarding new employees but existing employees: There’s been a significant amount of change in the last year and things look very different coming back. It’s important to consider the return as seamless as possible, giving both new and existing employees access to the information and resources they need to feel comfortable coming back.
  • Concise communication: Employees are relying on companies to be clear on where they stand with return-to-work policies. Communication needs to be as clear and intentional as possible in an environment that’s constantly changing, especially when people are distributed.
  • Safe ways for creating connection in the workplace: Consider bringing back-office happy hours and events to reconnect with coworkers, but also implementing digital ways to connect given we’re in a hybrid setting.
