As vaccination rates climb and COVID-19 case counts fall, many employers are starting to consider whether and how to bring people back to work. But it’s not that simple.

We’re living—and working—in a new world. Employees today have higher expectations of their employers. Some have made changes to their lives over the course of the pandemic, and many won’t be willing to give up their new, more flexible lifestyles. Others will have lasting concerns about health and safety and will continue to be wary of physical offices or business travel. Some may refuse to get vaccinated. Given this new complex reality, employers are faced with tougher decisions than ever.

In this episode, Andrea Lekushoff is joined by Broad Reach Communication’s Vice President David Scott to provide an overview of our most recent thought leadership report and discuss five difficult-but-critical questions that employers have to consider and start communicating about immediately.
