How and why we should strive to make hybrid working a success for managers 
The Human Side of Hybrid – Supporting Managers and Teams to Thrive

Our generation is faced with a unique opportunity to make hybrid – and more flexible – working a success for everyone, long into the future. But how do we overcome the challenges presented by irregular hours, remote teams, and digital meetings, to ensure that the new world of work is a triumph, not a trial?

Join our live webinar with guest speaker Gary Cookson, Director of EPIC HR and author of “HR for Hybrid Working,” and Nahdia Khan, Chief Impact Officer at Mind Tools, for this inspiring discussion about how a human-centered approach to developing the skills of managers can secure a happier working experience for employees – and better results for organizations.

We’ll be discussing:

The challenges presented to managers when navigating a hybrid work environment, and why a human-centered learning strategy can help to address these.

How L&D can be the flagbearer for prioritizing managerial wellbeing for the benefit of the whole organization.

The opportunities presented by the hybrid world, and what the future can look like if organizations prioritize its success.
