About this webinar

If there is one discussion that is rife amongst people leaders, it’s what a successful transition back to “the workplace” will look like? 

Both daunting and exciting, the return to a level of normality presents HR with a number of challenges, and opportunities.  

Whether you're curious as how to encourage collaboration between your new hybrid workforce, or how to reconnect your employees with the culture they've missed, your return is sure to raise a lot of questions from across the business.

So that’s why we went behind the scenes and spoke to two People leaders from two very different workplaces. Perkbox’s own Chief People Officer, Mona Akiki and Perkbox customer, Emma Brierley the HR Director at the Royal Lancaster Hotel discussed: 

  • The new wellbeing challenges and how to address them
  • How to re-engage and motivate employees
  • Balancing hybrid working with collaboration and connection 
  • Advice for re-energising your culture 
  • How to make recognition fair across the workplace
