Conference of Latvian Society of Organizational Psychology

Hybridwork: how was it & where it is going?

What are the best practices of hybrid work up to this point? What will hybrid work look like in 2-5 years? 

October 6 & 7 14:00-17:00 , 2022 (Zoom Conference)

Riga, Latvia,

The theme of the conference intends to present the latest research and general understanding of hybrid work, and particularly dive into psychological aspects of new common ways of working.

During pandemics we have received interest in the topic from different organizations and individuals alike. During Covid-19 crisis, a lot of difficult decisions had to be made, and several are yet to be made for organizations to understand how to deal with new conditions. As the new way of working is still evolving it’s especially important to prepare what are the best practices or lessons learned from the professional environment up to this point.

Firstly, at the point where Covid-19 is going through different phases, organizations are adjusting to state regulations at any given point in time. Secondly, after more than 2 years of working in either fully remote or hybrid models, employees and organizations have learned new ways of working in force majeure mode. When health regulations start to normalize, organizations start to rethink what to keep, what to revert to old onsite. Where is the balance, where the modern way of working is evolving to? What are the communication, trust, leadership, culture and career growth aspects when we enter the hybrid way of work as an organization? 

The conference will cover actual topics and principles of hybrid way of working. It aims at helping organizations to create a sufficient environment, and deal and strive in uncertain and changing times to sustain satisfied and productive employees along the way.
