Jason Lauritsen – Chief Content Officer – achieve Engagement


When, where, and how we work changed forever in early 2020. Today, we know that over half of workers can do their jobs remotely. This has left many organizations struggling to redefine what “workplace” is going to mean for them in the future. There are many new questions to answer, including rethinking the role of physical workspace and considering how to maintain culture virtually.

As organizations wrap-up this challenging year, the workplace won’t just return to normal in 2021 and beyond. The work “place” is undergoing a pivotal transition. Working in an office or from home are not the only options to consider for workers. HR and Talent Leaders need to design for the third alternative by reinventing their capabilities and responding to what works for their workforce.

The time for empty promises about diversity and inclusion shared on corporate websites has passed. In the era of #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, current and future employees are demanding real action from employers to create truly equitable and inclusive experiences. This will call upon employers to take a hard look at their policies and practices to make meaningful progress.

And as organizations move into 2021, they must demonstrate that they not only believe in the value of diversity but that they are committed to the fulfilling promise of equity. And this promise will become a non-negotiable part of how they do things. In this track, you will learn from those who are leading the way by demonstrating what a truly inclusive and equitable organization looks like and how it benefits their employees, their communities, and the bottom line.

In the past six months, the critical linkage between employee well-being and their performance at work has been made clear. When employees’ core human needs like safety, belonging, health, and meaning are not addressed, they simply cannot offer their best work. As we plan for what the near future of work will bring, one thing is certain -- well-being will be a vital component.

Since the coming year may not be any less uncertain than this one, it will be the organizations who retool to enhance and support employee well-being who will thrive. This work will include reimagining the employer-employee relationship as one anchored in care and invested in meeting the core needs of the employee. Efforts to support working parents, build personal financial acumen, cultivate resilience, and improve physical health will become mission-critical in tomorrow’s working realities.

In this track, we will explore how organizations are adapting and evolving to better support employee well-being, from the office to their homes.
