In a matter of weeks, businesses around the world will attempt a return to the working world we once knew. While there is no way of knowing for certain what the greatest challenges will be, or how long any semblance of stability will last, HR’s responsibilities towards the workforce remain unchanged, and in the post-pandemic workplace, are now more important than ever.

In this episode of the HRD Live Podcast, Michael Hocking is joined by Dan Schawbel. Dan is the New York Times Bestselling Author of Back to Human: How Great Leaders Create Connection in the Age of Isolation, and Promote Yourself: The New Rules for Building an Outstanding Career, and is Managing Partner of research and advisory firm, Workplace Intelligence.

This wide-ranging conversation runs the gamut of HR’s responsibilities in the post-pandemic world of 2020 and beyond, in a landscape entirely redefined by the COVID-19 pandemic. Michael and Dan dive deep into the realities of the post-pandemic office space, defining flexible working, the role of leadership and the renewed importance of mental health on the HR agenda.
