WASHINGTON, June 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — National Press Club will host a panel discussion on return to office workspaces on June 30 at 2 pm. Following are details:



Panel Discussion: ‘Back To The Office: Best Practices for Covid-Safe Workplaces


Wednesday, June 30 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm


Johnny C. Taylor, Jr. SHRM-SCP, President and CEO SHRM

Christopher J. Jowett, Chief Commercial Officer, Visby Medical, Inc.

Karla Miller, Washington Post Workplace Columnist

U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-VA)

Dr. Ethan Berke, Chief Public Health Officer, United Healthcare

Moderator: Emily Wilkins of Bloomberg Industry Group


This event will explore some of the key factors related to safety and security, as more and more employees head back to their places of work. How do we keep them safe against emerging variants? What is the best way to handle vaccine verification or those not getting vaccinated? SHRM will release some new polling data about employers and employee attitudes around return to the office; the panelists will talk about how their organizations (or organizations they cover) are approaching back to the office issues.

Editors Note:

One of the company panelists, Visby Medical, will be providing on-site rapid PCR testing for journalists covering the event. To find out more about the Visby Medical technology and workflows the company has developed to enable highly efficient, high-throughput on-site testing, contact info@visby.com. Safety concerns commonly limit the number of journalists who can fit in a room for in-person events, but on-site rapid, accurate and reliable testing can significantly improve those limits. Those interested in photographing or videotaping the testing process should plan to arrive about one hour prior to the event time (1:00 pm). 

On-site accurate and fast testing is a technology Visby Medical provided, via lab service providers, during the very successful NBA bubble in Orlando during 2020 and is now in use at numerous companies and sites around the country. 

Those wishing to attend this event in-person should register online. This event will also be live-streamed here.
