    As Northern Virginia looks to reopen on 5/29, Return to Work is top of mind for many organizations. This is a complex subject and requires careful consideration across many disciplines of Human Resources. Join us and our panel of experts at 4:00 PM on Thursday as they share their viewpoints and answer questions from the group.

    We will cover topics including:

    • Compliance
    • Engagement
    • Communications
    • Physical Space and Design

    Kamran Riazi

    Beginning his career as the creative director of a multi-media company and transforming himself into a true design consultant, Kamran uses his command of the design process to imagine possible futures and translate those ideas into actionable, valuable, concepts and products.

    With the introduction of IOE®, Kamran has applied our process and design thinking to a variety of opportunities – from the redesign of a sales process and transforming it into a physical solution for a large defense contractor, to the creation of a design guide/manual for an electronics company, to the operating environment design for a large non-profit headquarters that transformed how they work – all with measurable results!

    Kamran is also an innovator in the change management world. He pioneered OPX’s proprietary change management process called Transformation Leadership™, which builds upon the data generated by the IOE® process to methodically harness the energy leading to an organization’s impending paradigm shift. The process is designed to ensure everyone within the organization is aware of how they can and should work differently in order to make the project a success and deliver on the company’s strategy.

    Most recently, Kamran has introduced OPX’s ReEntry service addressing current market needs and concerns and helping organizations determine what their specific reentry to the workplace looks like.

    Since joining OPX in 1996, Kamran has designed offices, hotels, restaurants, commercial products, graphics, and processes. He serves on the OPX Leadership Committee and is instrumental in guiding OPX’s future as well as being a strong mentor and resource.
