Tysons Partnership Kicks off new Employer Forum

A lively and engaged group of Tysons Partnership members met virtually for an inaugural Employer Forum, led by forum chair, Barbara Steacy from Freddie Mac. The group combined two previously existing groups: 1) The Post-Pandemic Return to Office Group and 2) The Employer Forum (a group that previously predominately discussed wellness and mental health in the workplace) into one.

During the kick-off meeting, members shared unique experiences from their companies about return to office plans and policies, and a look toward 2022. The group agreed to meet bi-monthly with topics to include: policies for COVID-19 in a return to the office, innovative ideas to rebuild the workforce (especially within the hospitality industry), the future of a hybrid workplace, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (One Fairfax).

We look forward to providing Tysons employers and other stakeholders with a safe space to compare notes and share practices on a range of issues. The next meeting is scheduled for December 13. If you’d like to join the group or invite others from your organization to the meetings, please email ellen@tysonspartnership.org.
