Managing the Transition to In-Person Work


The Office of Human Resources is pleased to offer a series of workshops to support Graduate Center employees as they prepare to return to in-person work in August. 
In our upcoming “Transition Workshops,” we will give you more information and answer your questions about the new CUNY Flexible Work Guidelinesand the Remote Work Agreements that are due on July 15. 
Below, you can register for workshops for managers, and employees. All workshops will be held on Zoom, and we encourage you to attend. 
To help employees manage the anxiety that understandably accompanies the transition to in-person work, we have planned a workshop, “Managing Stress as We Return to Work: Practicing Resiliency During Times of Transition,” that will be hosted by our Employee Assistance Program vendor, CCA, on Tuesday, July 13. You will have the opportunity to discuss specific challenges and get advice for coping with uncertainty and anxiety. Learn more and register below.
