One thing is certain about the future of work: it’s flexible. Whether your company is planning for in-person, fully-remote, or a hybrid model, you probably have lots of questions about what it means for your career, your health, and your family. HR leaders are at the vanguard of shaping the transformation of the post-pandemic workplace. Leaders like Melanie Foley, Executive Vice President and Chief Talent and Enterprise Services Officer at Liberty Mutual Insurance. “Your company should want to put your people first,” she says. “And not just the part of the person who does tasks for you, but the whole person.” Melanie joins us to talk about what the new normal of flexibility will mean for employees and for businesses and how culture, leadership, and values will evolve in lockstep. She also shares what benefits employers plan to offer in the months ahead to support employees and their families and why embracing flexibility is key to attracting and retaining top talent.
