HR Beyond COVID: Preparing the Way for the Post-Pandemic Workforce


Steve Peglar SPHR, PI, SHRM-SCP, Deputy Executive Director / Head of HR & Organizational Development at Housing Authority of Travis County


With hope on the horizon for an end to the global pandemic, organizations throughout the world anxiously anticipate what the future of the workplace will ultimately look like and how they as employers will adapt to the post-pandemic “new normal.” After undergoing the largest ever experiment in remote working practices that the world has ever seen – which has generally resulted in a broad positive impact – things will never be quite the same for these organizations and their employees when the danger from COVID-19 has passed. Moving into this uncertain future, HR is faced with a range of challenges in continuing to implement, administer, and enhance these new ways of working, and to effectively and successfully maintain and improve a workplace that is likely forever changed as a result of our collective experience. In this engaging program, Steve Peglar, SPHR, PI, SHRM-SCP, will present insightful observations and practical tactics for addressing these concerns, with topics including:

  • The Great Remote Work Experiment • What Has Worked…and What Didn’t? 
  • The Likely Future
  • Critical HR Considerations for the Post-Pandemic Workforce
  • Potential Post-Pandemic Positives….and Negatives
