Managing the Risks of Returning to the Office Amid the Delta Surge for IT and Audit Professionals
On Wednesday, August 18, 2021, 12:00PM to 1:00PM Eastern, ISACA South Florida will host a free webinar discussing managing risk while returning to physical workspaces. In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as IT and audit professionals will dramatically improve your ability to return to in-office work by benchmarking to best practices. Many leaders have a preference for in-person work. Yet research conclusively demonstrates that those employees who can do so have a strong preference to work remotely much of their time, and a large minority all of their time. Moreover, remote workers show substantial productivity gains, cost savings, and risk mitigation. Mental blindspots called cognitive biases often inhibit leaders in seeing this clear conclusion. The best approach to returning to the office involves a hybrid-first model with some limited full-time remote options. Doing so will enable organizations to excel in retention and recruitment, boost productivity, re-energize company culture, gain substantial cost savings, and manage a wide variety of risks. This presentation offers case studies and best practices that you need to make the most effective and successful return to the office in the context of the Delta surge and new variants, so as to maximize your competitive advantage in the most important resource: your people.
