One of the focal points of the event was the presentation of a preview of the project’s state-of-the-art e-learning platform that will be used by the project:
– It will offer a wide range of educational resources and tools to facilitate the navigation of managers and HR professionals in hybrid workplaces.
– It will be a repository of world-class training materials.
– It will serve as a collaborative space for the exchange of best practices and interaction among participants.


The meeting provided an overview of the various work packages (WP) and key objectives of the project, with particular emphasis on:

WP2: Leveraging digitisation and evidence-based hybrid meeting practices to improve workplace efficiency.

WP3: Develop a comprehensive training programme for HR professionals and managers, including a two-day workshop and pilot initiatives in partner countries to gather feedback and refine training modules.

The Stay Connected project allows to address the evolving challenges of hybrid work environments and to ensure equal opportunities for all employees. The strong commitment and enthusiasm of the participants underlines the urgency and relevance of such initiatives, and points to a promising path towards fostering fairer and more inclusive workplaces.
