From technology enablement and policy change to managing the wellbeing of a hybrid workforce, there’s a new world of work and it’s reshaping corporate life.
Join Claudia Crummenerl of Capgemini Invent and special guest Mickaël Locoh from Steelcase as they discuss the challenges and opportunities of hybrid working with show host Ollie Judge.
This is Part 2 of our Future of Work podcast (listen to Part 1) the conversation moves forward with the understanding that hybrid work is no longer ‘perhaps’ but a ‘definite’ long-term model. Both Claudia and Mickaël assert that making hybrid work a success is hard. There’s no easy solution and decisions made in the early days of the pandemic may have to be rethought.
Perhaps you’ve built a business case on the productivity gains of less employee commute time and fewer coffee break chats. Our experts argue that this approach ignores a crucial factor — the human connection that we all need. And now that employees are returning to the workplace, how much pressure is being put on them to maintain the work-from-home productivity levels?
Tune in to our podcast to hear why Claudia and Mickaël believe leadership approaches need to change. Leaders must be coaches, mentors, empathetic — and more. Why? Because the challenges teams now face in a hybrid world have also changed.
