Returning to Work After COVID-19

Although many jobs may remain remote, certain jobs may eventually return to a traditional workspace environment.
According to the American Psychological Association, returning to work will be challenging for both businesses and employees. Many workers will enjoy returning to the workforce and being surrounded by colleagues while other employees will be apprehensive. Employees may be concerned with health, getting back to a routine, or personal issues outside the workplace.
Organizations should prepare for these concerns and provide guidance, coaching, and special programs to allow employees to adjust to returning to the workplace. Even with a structured plan and policies in place, some businesses may need assistance. One consideration would be to bring in an outside party that is skilled in solving complex problems in the workplace. Industrial-Organizational Psychologists, also known as I-O Psychologist are trained professionals that study human behavior in the workplace.
I-O Psychologists assist leaders in developing effective management skills and methods to improve employee engagement. They can assist in helping employees adjust to new work protocols and mediate issues with work-life balance.
I-O psychologist can assess the workplace to develop a plan that can ensure that is aligned with the specific needs of the organization. The anticipated result is a healthy work environment that provides engagement and job satisfaction to the employee while accomplishing organizational outcomes.

On Tuesday, September 15th , The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Southeast (IACCSE) has proudly held the IACCSE e-masterclass series“Prosecco DOC: a journey through the Italian bubbles tradition and passion”, an online masterclass that gave attendees the opportunity to discover four authentic Italian Prosecco DOC labels thanks to the contribution of importers and distributors operating in Florida, as well as the participation of industry experts.

The e-masterclass was part of the “The Extraordinary Italian Taste” campaign, promoted by the Italian Government and devoted to the promotion of ‘Made in Italy’ products and the education of American consumers on protected denominations.

Prosecco is the world’s most exported Italian wine and the US market alone accounts for 21% of the exports outside of Italy (second only to Europe), with Florida representing a significant share.

During this online event – moderated by Doreen Colondres (Celebrity Chef, Wine Educator, and Cookbook Author) – a panel of experts from the industry shared their expertise and experience in the wine world, with a particular focus on the Prosecco DOC market opportunities and main trends in Florida:

  • Alessandra Esteves, Director of Wine Education, Florida Wine Academy
  • Jennifer Schmitt, Head Sommelier, Zuma Miami
  • Dieter Xiao, Restaurant Operations and Development Manager, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings

The e-masterclass allowed the audience to learn not only about the technical characteristics of each of the presented wines, but also to take part to a journey through the many different aspects that revolve around Prosecco DOC and its legacy in the Italian lifestyle, culture and cuisine. Its territory of origin, the best plates to serve it with, how to create cocktails with Prosecco, are just examples of the themes that the presentations included:

Torresella Prosecco DOC
