Organizations everywhere are mapping out their return-to-work plans, and as part of the process they’re evaluating the hybrid workplace, reimagined offices, work-from-home support for employees and a lot more. They’re also grappling with burnout and employee mental health.

In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, host Brandon Laws talks workplace “musts” with Ragan Communications CEO Diane Schwartz. Diane talks about what employees expect and what employers need to do to make employees feel safe, heard, and connected in this new normal. “This past year has shown that organizations can and should play a role holistically in employee well-being,” she says. “Employees expect that from their organizations, just as they expect the organization to take a stand on social justice or vaccinations.”
