About this event

This conference is designed for Recruiters, Talent Acquisition Pros, HR Business Partners, Org Dev, DEI and Belonging, and executive leadership, but all with an interest in employee engagement and corporate culture are welcome.

Join us at the Return-to-Office Summit in beautiful Bend, Oregon, for a candid discussion about recruitment, engagement and retention in a post-COVID world.

The pandemic brought the future of work into the present of work,” said Anthony Klotz, a management professor at Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School.

The move to remote work and changes in job flexibility may not have occurred for another 30 years if not for the crisis, he explained.

While shutdowns meant a quick move to working from home, many employees aren’t returning to the office full time, if at all, as restrictions are relaxed. Others can work from anywhere in the world or just four days a week. Some even have secured flexibility around the hours they work.

“We are not going back to the world of work in 2019”, Klotz said.

Because these work arrangements give us more flexibility and control over our lives, and more autonomy and freedom in how we structure our lives, I don’t think most people are willing to go back to a traditional work environment, he said.

The new changes are here to stay“, Klotz added.

How do organizational leaders navigate this brave new world, and create effective recruiting, engagement, and retention strategies?

Featured Speakers List and Agenda to be released by the end of September.
