Every week, we give you 5 key takeaways from our insights and thought leadership on HRD Connect. This week: New York Times Bestselling Author Dan Schawbel talks humanity in the post-pandemic workplace, Dave Ulrich shares his top tips on mastering the art of transitions, and more.

1. Businesses are neglecting exit strategies

Organizations across the globe are vigorously preparing for the return to work, and in doing so, are adjusting to what they think ‘the new normal is going to look like’. However, there is a feeling that exit strategies are not being given the attention they perhaps deserve. Brian Kropp, Chief of HR Research, Gartner, shares his thoughts on this, and how organizations can be covered on all fronts as they return to the workplace.

2. Mastering the art of transitions

Transitional periods are notoriously difficult to manage within organizations. Most notably, maintaining culture whilst everything is changing can be a daunting task. So many challenges can arise from this, but generally speaking, this can lead to a decline in employee satisfaction, and therefore productivity.

Sam Alberti, Reporter, HRD Connect takes a closer look at this issue, and examines the importance of leaders making care and compassion a priority.

5. A human approach to creating the post-pandemic workplace

With a myriad of factors to consider in planning the return to work, leaders can forget to make people the priority. Could a humanistic approach be the answer? We discuss this and much more with Dan Schawbel, New York Times Bestselling Author & Managing Partner of Workplace Intelligence, on this weeks edition of the HRD Live Podcast.
