KEYNOTES
Belonging in a Hybrid Workforce: Fostering Human Connection & Community in Challenging Times

In the age of coronavirus, the necessity of remote work and social distancing has increased the lack of human connection at work. More than 60 percent of Americans are feeling lonely and one-third of Americas show signs of clinical anxiety or depression amid the pandemic. Only 30 percent of people report that they have a best friend at work, and 10 percent say they have zero friends in the workplace; even though data shows that employees who have a best friend at work are 7 times more engaged with their work. How do we stay connected and engaged in these uncertain and challenging times? How do we re-imagine company culture when we’re not at the office together, and foster workforce belonging as we’re spending more and more time connecting via technology and social media? How do we solve the growing loneliness and mental health epidemic in our companies and across the world?

In this inspiring, interactive, and highly relevant virtual presentation, author and millennial workplace expert Adam Smiley Poswolsky will share how we can increase human connection, inspire creativity, and create more belonging, by building supportive communities inside the workplace. Smiley will lead participants through an interactive alignment exercise to help them clarify how they can best show up for their colleagues (and customers) in these uncertain times, and tangible ways to make remote work feel more human and more connected. We’ll discuss how to stay engaged in the age of hybrid work, and how this time can be an opportunity for learning, leadership development, and personal growth. Smiley will share practical strategies to help you re-imagine a collaborative, inclusive, purpose-driven remote work culture, that empowers everyone on your team.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

Engaging the Multigenerational Workplace: Communicating Across Generations

How do we create an employee experience where every single employee can thrive?

We’ll breakthrough common stereotypes about Gen-Z, Millennial, Gen-X, and Baby Boomer employees, share case studies for increasing employee engagement and learn proven strategies and tools to increase retention and foster intergenerational collaboration in the workplace, which will help you build a purpose-driven company culture that empowers all of your employees.
