The Great Resignation swept across the working world in 2021, driven by a heady cocktail of greater employee freedom and new perspectives on life and priorities. Simultaneously, with job vacancies at record heights, employees were empowered, perhaps even emboldened. With the pace of change in the world of work relatively slow up until the pandemic, with companies gradually moving towards the hybrid model, decades of change came almost overnight. Now the advent of hybrid promises greater employee empowerment and the chance to have a life and a job, companies are being forced to evolve or fail. Our panelists will discuss this change, and also highlight how the introduction of hybrid working can be a win-win for businesses too, driving down their real-estate costs and giving them access to the best talent regardless of geographic location.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how the world of work is finally keeping pace with digital innovation and how companies can now attract and retain the best talent.

  • Explore and understand the tension in employee experience and how it can be improved by de-siloing the relationship between CRE, HR and IT through AECOM’s work in employee-centricity.

  • Get the tools and template for transforming employee experiences through panelists’ experience of supporting some of the top companies in the world on this journey.
