Over the last year, many leaders have been wondering when business will get back to “normal.”

But now the fact that a large portion of the population have yet to get vaccinated and the resurgence of Covid-19 through the Delta variant have many leaders wondering what’s next and what their workplaces will look like next month and in years to come.

This week's guest, Steve Peglar, says that although the new normal is a moving target, there are things that business leaders can do to maintain an agile and productive workforce.

In this thirty-minute episode, the speakers talk about returning to the office, questions about mandatory vaccines, symptoms screening, and other illness related protocols, as well as what diversity, equality, and inclusion initiatives look like in a remote environment.
