The ROI of IRL: How to Build a Strong Community in Your Hybrid Organization

In-Person Workshop, Virtual Presentation or Large-Stage Keynote

Whether your employees are at work in real life (IRL) three days a week, three days a month or three days a year, your hybrid organization will benefit from creating a strong community. Since the US Surgeon General has made it clear that we are in the midst of an epidemic of loneliness and isolation, and hybrid work has only increased employees’ feelings of disconnection, it’s never been more important to design intentional community. And research shows that when employees feel more connected at work, their ability to do their job, the quality of their work, and a desire to go above and beyond all increase. [Eagle Hill Consulting] In this inspiring program, Erica will teach you how to create community at work, regardless of how often people meet in person. Erica will show you why a lack of intentionality is a recipe for resentment (and bad for the bottom line!) and guide you in creating moments that matter for your employees. 

Erica shares rich case studies and recent data so attendees will come away with strategies to create a human workplace where people are connected, engaged, and more likely to stay.

“The workplace is changing with new faces, new technology, and new expectations. Few are better positioned to speak, write, and consult on the convergence of these forces than Erica Keswin.

The Hidden Power of Workplace Rituals: Increased Performance and Bigger Payoffs

In-Person Workshop, Virtual Presentation or Large-Stage Keynote

Nearly everything we know about work has changed over the last five years. From new perspectives on mental health, to an increased demand for purposeful work, to general uncertainty, employees are asking their leaders for more. One recent survey from the American Psychological Association found that 93% of employees value meaning and stability at work. One of the most powerful tools modern leaders can use to address these new challenges is rituals.  

 

In this program, Erica shares the hidden power of workplace rituals and how to use them to create increased performance and bigger payoffs. How? Because rituals provide a sense of psychological safety and a connection to purpose—which boosts the bottom line.

With Erica’s actionable roadmap, participants will learn helpful frameworks for building collective rituals for their teams, department or organization. Tapping into the hidden power of workplace rituals is good for people and great for business.

“In my 20+ years as an architect, creating spaces where people work, think, and interact, I have learned that what people value most in life are experiences and relationships. In our highly digitalized world, Erica brings a refreshing view to a central question: how can we align today’s technology with the social environment we’d like to create? Her stated aim, to help improve inter-human relationships in a digital world, is actually achieved in her workshops themselves! Just putting down our devices to exchange ideas isn’t an end unto itself, but it’s a very good start!”
