Expectations around the modern workplace are ever evolving, pushing many HR leaders into performing a series of balancing acts… balancing the expectations of new and experienced talent often means breaching the gap between generations with completely different understandings of what the ideal workplace looks like. Meanwhile, maintaining a hybrid of in-person and remote working styles means balancing the expectations of employees and executives across the organisation. Common challenges for CHROs are conflicting priorities and a rapidly changing landscape in pursuing improved employee experience.

Managing these varied priorities and expectations is crucial to enabling a satisfied, diverse, and engaged workforce. HR leaders have reported that developing collaboration, managing performance, and preventing detachment from the company are the biggest challenges they face in the hybrid work environment. Join your peers to discuss how CHROs can balance conflicting priorities in a rapidly changing landscape, elevate employee experience and evolve employee value proposition.

Meet Conflicting Expectations Amidst Sporadic Change

  • How do you ensure your company can retain existing employees while attracting new talent with differing expectations?
  • How are you creating consistent expectations for interpersonal dynamics in your organisation and amongst team members?
  • What role should HR take to address uncertainty in the ever-changing workplace?

Maximise HR Strategy in a Hybrid Environment

  • How are you approaching your hybrid work strategy for 2024? How do you expect it to continue to change the landscape of your work environment?
  • What are effective strategies to encourage collaboration and engagement within a hybrid work environment?
  • Rapid changes affecting the workplace environment can impact productivity, trust, and connection to the company. How are you managing these elements of the workplace?
