Business & Theology Day 2022
People of Faith and the New Normal in the Workplace
Regardless of industry or type of organization, the workplace as we knew it has changed and done so at an unprecedented pace. While we slowly move beyond the pandemic, our attention is turned to understanding the effects of that change and the opportunties and challenges it presents. As leaders in business and civil society, we are tasked with shaping the new normal, addressing problems of equity and inclusion and attending to sustainability. Our faith calls us to be proactive in undertaking this task and ensuring our workplaces are structured to respect human dignity and promote human flourishing. We have a wealth of theological and spiritual resources available to aid us in accomplishing this task. Together we’ll examine some of these and their relationship to best practices as we consider appropriate ways to shape the new normal in the workplace.
