Lunch and Learn: The Future is Hybrid? How we can shape the future of our work

Register Here for this experiential Lunch & Learn where attendee will get the tools to help you plan for and transition to a hybrid workplace. 



An office is more than just four walls, a couple of windows, and a door. As organizational leaders explore and negotiate the return to the office, they must think outside the box (literally). The decisions we make about hybrid work right now will shape the future of our organizations for years to come. 

Discover practical tools to help you plan for and manage a hybrid workplace in this Lunch and Learn with CSI Member Challenge Factory.

By the end of this event you will:

  1. Identify how return-to-the-office decisions are not just about space, but also organizational culture, careers, and expectations of leadership. 
  2. Gain insight and tips on what’s different about managing in a hybrid world and how to do it well. 
  3. Participate in activities that create a vision of your own Future of Work and contribute to a collective understanding of what that might look like. 

This event will run from 12:00pm-1:00pm EDT. This will be a knowledge sharing and experiential session so discussion and questions can be shared throughout.
