The Violent Person at Work is on everyone's mind, from multinational employers to nonprofits. In 2021 alone, a massacre impacting a workplace has occurred on average once a week, the highest levels reported in 19 years. The continuity leader must have a seat at the table, working with HR, Legal and Security when a person may be agitated by a performance review, separation discussion, community relations problem or because of mental illness, for example. Dr. Barton will help unlock the appropriate way continuity leaders can influence awareness, not paranoia, and specific tools and strategies aimed at keeping your workplace safe. This is a rare opportunity to hear from and exchange ideas from the nation's leading thought leader on violence at work.

Returning to the Office and Managing Hybrid and Remote Teams for Business Continuity Professionals

Thursday, July 8, 2021

In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as a business continuity professional will dramatically improve your ability to return to in-office work by benchmarking to best practices. Many leaders prefer in-person work, yet research conclusively demonstrates that those employees who can do so have a strong preference to work remotely much of their time, and a large minority all of their time. Moreover, remote workers show substantial productivity gains, cost savings, and risk mitigation.

Mental blind spots called cognitive biases often inhibit leaders in seeing this clear conclusion. The best approach to returning to the office involves a hybrid-first model with some limited full-time remote options. Doing so will enable organizations to excel in retention and recruitment, boost productivity, re-energize company culture, gain substantial cost savings, and manage a wide variety of risks.

This presentation offers case studies and best practices that you need to make the most effective and successful return to the office, to maximize your competitive advantage in the most important resource: your people.
