Blue Ox Success Series: Handling the Hybrid Work World

Tuesday, August 9, 2022 (9:00 AM - 10:30 AM) (CDT)


Our work world has changed and with it came remote work, hybrid meetings, and trying to team build with people in different locations. We get it and are here to help.

After this discussion, you will have a better understanding of the complexity, the benefits, and the planning needed for a hybrid work experience to be beneficial for your office and your employees.

We'll focus on:

  1. Hybrid -- What are we talking about?
  2. Planning – I didn’t think about that!
  3. Flexibility – This is more than being able to do your laundry.
  4. Creativity -- One shoe does not fit everyone.
  5. Wrap up – We can make it work!

We welcome attendance in person and on Zoom. Please email your preference to Paula Chapulis: (Max in person capacity is 32. Zoom information will be emailed to virtual attendees.)

Owner and Principal, Ruis Consulting Group 

Jon Ruis is the Owner and Principal of Ruis Consulting Group. Throughout Jon’s career, he has trained, consulted, and worked with many different types of organizations from Fortune 500 organizations to small startup organizations. The common denominator has been their pursuit of growth.  Through these experiences, Jon has grown passionate about finding the power in our connections to fuel progress. 

Jon has held roles in many different areas of these organizations. He has worked as a consultant helping Fortune 500 companies build employee culture, worked in higher education, lived internationally designing and managing training programs for Peace Corp, served as the CEO of a non-profit organization, and led the business operations of a large regional law firm. 

Jon’s leadership background gives him a unique perspective that is beneficial for working with all types of organizations and partnering with them to get the best out of the collaboration.  

Although he enjoyed living and working internationally and in larger communities, he opted to come back to Central Minnesota to build his family and career. Jon lives in Sartell, MN with his wife and two children. On weekends, Jon will tell you that his happy place is when you find them on a golf course, camping, and preferably doing both.
