Re-Entry Roundtable Series

Navigating HR for Hybrid Teams

July 23rd with Kathy Albarado

A transition to hybrid work environments promises new flexibility for our teams, but also introduces new questions:

  • What conversations do we need to have around vaccinations?
  • What benefits and policies make most sense for a hybrid workforce?
  • What steps can we take to prevent burnout?
  • How do we know if our people are (and stay) engaged?

To answer these questions and more, Optimal Networks is thrilled to host a roundtable discussion with human resources expert Kathy Albarado.

Kathy Albarado is Founder and CEO of Helios HR, an award-winning HR outsourcing, consulting and recruiting firm that has helped organizations ranging from star-ups to the Fortune 500 enhance their corporate culture and thrive as the result. An Alumni of GMU, Kathy holds her B.S. in Psychology and her M.A. in Human Resource Management.

After offering her expert advice on key best practices, she will answer any and all questions you have.
