The challenges of returning to work, Seebyte’s struggle

Following on from our webinar, How to manage reluctant returners, we delved deeper into the issue which elicited much discussion and debate, of managing your team returning to work. Scott Reed, Chief Technical Officer at Seebyte, joined Margery to share some of the practical measures that they have put in place to make the office space Covid compliant.

Seebyte has 70 employees in Edinburgh with a small sister company of 6-7 in San Diego. Scott will be sharing how they have ensured accurate information for Test and Trace and the approaches the business is taking to get the team back to the office and working as a team safely and effectively.
There are some very practical and business related reasons that are driving these types of decisions and have given the management team a number of potential dilemmas as they balance the cultural expectations of the team, demanding client requirements and management of expert skills and technical resources.

Topics covered in this webinar:

  • The practical challenges of returning to work
  • The human challenges of people returning to work
  • A variety of scenarios that can occur
  • How to balance the cultural expectations of your team with demanding client requirements
