Cornerstone Research hosted “Relationship-Building in a Post-Pandemic World,” a networking event featuring Dr. Constance Hadley of Boston University’s Questrom School of Business.
The rise of remote and hybrid work has upended traditional office dynamics, leaving many employees feeling disconnected. The impacts of the pandemic have disproportionately affected women, many of whom are now re-examining the boundaries of work and home life with different expectations. Loneliness, inequity, and burnout are top of mind.
Many workplace discussions center on helping people find more meaning at work and identifying hidden problems or roadblocks. Is work being shared equitably? Are relationships developing in a manner that supports careers and organizational goals? Do employees feel psychologically safe?
To explore these questions, we welcomed Constance Hadley, of Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. A sought-after speaker, Dr. Hadley is a leading expert on the future of work, team dynamics, and inclusive cultures. In a research-based talk, she shared strategies for how to build connections in a hybrid workplace, offering practical steps to counter loneliness and burnout, increase social support networks for women, and create a culture of psychological safety.
This presentation was sponsored by Cornerstone Research Women’s Forum, which fosters discussion of thought-provoking topics relevant to professionals working in the legal community. The evening offered valuable content, lively conversation, and networking with local women legal professionals and senior staff of Cornerstone Research.
