L.A. Care Communications Director Joins Ragan Panel on Hybrid Work

Ragan Communications, a leading resource and publisher on internal and external corporate communications, is hosting it’s a three-day Social Media Conference this week in Orlando, Florida. Misty de Lamare, the Director of Communications at L.A. Care Health Plan, has been invited to join a panel titled Rethinking Hybrid Work: Taking a People-First Approach to Engaging With Employees.

COVID-19 forced many companies to shift to a remote workforce. Now that most pandemic precautions are ending, companies are shifting again to a hybrid model. de Lamare and Chelsey Louzeiro, the Digital Community Manager at Heifer International, will discuss how the pandemic changed the way they engaged their employees, and they will offer tips for implementing strategies that enable the flexibilities that today’s employees expect.

de Lamare will discuss how she addressed individual issues on an individual basis, understanding that everyone handled the pandemic differently. During the health crisis, she felt it was important to provide opportunities for employees to express feelings and share experiences, and also to remind them that they could find support through the employee assistance program, which provides counseling visits with a license clinician.

In other panels, attendees will learn how brand voice and brand reputation work together to inform your messaging and how to unleash social media platforms to deepen customer trust and loyalty.
