CEO Panel "The shift to hybrid work: preparing for the business and social impact"
Jane SunJenny ZhengDr. Wendy PurcellDr. Jian LuYubo Chen

Hybrid work has been a hot topic of discussion and debate in businesses and the media outside China as the global workforce is gradually returning to the reopened workplace after more than a year of working from home. Recognizing that the COVID pandemic hasn’t actually ended and plenty of uncertainty remains, businesses have realized that they are not returning to a “pre-pandemic normal” but a “new normal” with a hybrid model. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella says this hybrid model represents “the biggest shift to how we work in our generation,” and believes it will require “a new operating model, spanning people, places, and processes.”

In China, however, the COVID outbreak has been contained much earlier and more completely. Businesses have largely returned to their pre-pandemic normal for more than year with some continued control measures in response to scattered resurgences of COVID cases.

Should businesses in China adopt the hybrid model? This panel brings together top executives from China-based companies and leading scholars in public health and economic policies from both China and the US to discuss hybrid work, aiming to provide insights and perspectives around the following questions:
• What is “hybrid work” and how is it different from “flexible work”?
• What are employers doing now in talent and work management to seamlessly fit in a hybrid workplace across both home and office?
• What are the impacts on people and society as hybrid work becomes a widely implemented model?
• How should businesses in China approach and implement the hybrid model?

CMO Panel “Global digital engagement strategies”
He XinNicole ChouYi LiGang Lu

Successful branding and marketing strategies are what set iconic brands in a class of their own. Even the most celebrated global companies might not strike upon the right formula to thrive in the uniquely complex and evolving China market. Companies that do effectively adapt for China might even enjoy a boost in brand equity and tap into a vital source of domestic innovation that could benefit their other markets. Similarly many of China's strong local innovators have developed novel products and services positioned to capture overseas markets, if they can find the right channels and master different rules of engagement.
