To Remote or Not to Remote? That is the Question! A Tale of Two Firms

For most AEC firms, remote and hybrid work arrangements are now essential for retaining scarce talent. But with our new reality comes a myriad of engagement challenges, and AEC HR professionals find themselves caught between top leaders concerned about productivity and employees demanding flexibility. Is there a way to bring everyone together? In our opening keynote address, you will hear from two AEC firm talent management experts who, like you, are facing issues of employee mental health, post-pandemic burnout, return-to-office challenges, and the impact of the Great Resignation on staffing needs. They will help you identify why you may be struggling to maintain communication, collaboration, and recognition within remote teams and what you can consider doing about it. They will also share what the latest employee feedback data is telling us about what our employees really want and what we should do about it.
