A Tale of Two Hybrids: Navigating Work in a Contemporary World
The pandemic fueled a global work experiment from which we learned that if employers do not
adapt and evolve, employees will opt out. In response, employers are rushing to create
policy-driven workforce solutions (all office / hybrid / all remote). Are these solutions data
driven? Do they address the root causes of our challenges in the workplace? Do they really
respond to what today’s talent is looking for from employers?

Jody Thompson will:
● Introduce you to unique social science perspectives around engagement, stress, and
equity in the workplace

● Willing to keep an open mind
● Seeking to lead rather than follow the herd
