When students, faculty, and staff return to college campuses after the pandemic, it will not just be “business as usual.” The shift to remote teaching, learning, and working has revealed that many of the day-to-day tasks performed by higher-education employees can be done just as effectively online as in person if the right tools and policies are in place.
Now, as higher-education leaders plan for the return to a “new normal” on their campuses, many are re-evaluating the roles of employees, including student workers. Housing and dining will undergo critical changes to adapt to the new reality that not everyone will return to campus. As roles change, new areas of efficiencies may emerge—and better visibility into labor costs will give leaders real data with which to make more informed decisions.
This webinar will look at some of the key questions that campus leaders face as they plan for what the future of their workforce will look like when the pandemic is over, such as…
- Who comes back? Remote work is now a viable option for many employees, depending on their job type. How does this shift affect workflows and responsibilities? How can leaders effectively manage a workforce that is partially remote in the future?
- How is morale? Employee engagement might have lapsed during the pandemic, as institutions spent the majority of their time focused on ensuring high-quality student instruction. What can be done about that?
- What does the future look like? The evolution of the workforce has accelerated during the pandemic. Efficiency is needed now more than ever. Leaders are taking a hard look at current processes and wondering: “How can we do this better?”
- How can you keep your employees safe? Even when the pandemic is finally over, employee safety will continue to be critical. What lessons have campus leaders learned, and what tools can they use moving forward?
