New FCBA Prez Will Navigate Post-Pandemic Workplace World
"The big question that everybody has right now is, 'What does programming, work, and life look like in a pandemic recovery?'
The big question that I'm dealing with initially is, 'When is it safe to begin gathering in person again and what type of conditions should there be on that?' We want to be sensitive to people's personal comfort, as well as any existing legal and venue requirements. There are so many wild cards.
The other question is, 'What is people's work going to look like?' A bunch of companies and firms are doing a hybrid-type work schedule where you're in the office a couple days and then maybe working from home for a couple days. We're trying to find out information about that, as well as whether employers are allowing employees to travel, whether companies are sponsoring events that are being held in person, etc.
There are a lot of variables at play. And I think that's going to be the biggest challenge of my year — just trying to continue monitoring these ever-changing conditions and making decisions that are the best for the organization."
