San Gabriel Valley (SVG)

Technology CEO Group

1st Friday of the month from | 8:15 am – 12:15 pm | Monrovia, CA

Upcoming Meeting

 FRIDAY, August 6

Opening Discussion Topic:

How Much Hybrid For You? How? Why?

Hybrid working arrangements with employees appears to now be a widely accepted approach by organizations. There are some current holdouts among the larger investment banks, but even they may have to accept what is becoming the “new normal,” as competitors are competing with them for their employees with hybrid offers.

But what will hybrid work look like for your business?

What requirements for in-person work attendance are you now planning on using?

Annual, semi-annual, quarterly, monthly, bi-weekly, weekly, twice a week, three times a week, four times a week, daily?

For whom?


What will be your rationale, as expressed to your employees? Nature of the work? Customer requirements? Management’s desire? To poach employees from companies not providing what their employees want?

We’ll have a brief presentation on emerging practices around the country, then Round Table Participants will share and question each other regarding their current practices, plans, and thinking in this important dimension of their operations.

Then, as always, we’ll look to hear and discuss, “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?

We’ll also be serving as Strategic Advisory Board Members to Jinghui Li, as he makes the Featured Member Presentation.

Jinghui Li, Ph.D., is President of Auxora, Inc., a leader in passive optical solutions, serving Tier-1 customers globally in various markets: data centers, telecom/datacom; CATV; bio-photonics; high-power laser mirrors, and advanced optics for automobiles. Auxora is a vertically integrated manufacturer of optical thin film filter coatings, optical components and modules.
