Adrian D. Thompson, co-partner-in-charge of Taft Cleveland and the firm’s Chief Diversity Officer, has been selected to moderate the 2021 Annual Middle Market Forum of the Greater Cleveland Partnership. The virtual meeting will be held Thursday, July 22, from 9–10 a.m. The program theme is “Exploring New Work Models in a Time of Transition.”

Executives from three of Greater Cleveland’s top companies will participate as panelists.

  1. Kelly Hancock, Chief Caregiver Officer, Cleveland Clinic.
  2. Gary VanderLind, Sr. V.P. and Chief Human Resources Officer, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.
  3. Heather Murray, Director of Real Estate and Facility Services, Corporate Finance, Progressive Insurance.

The executives will share their companies’ return to work plans and strategies, based on the needs of each business and in consideration of their employees’ best interests. Thompson will pose questions including:

  • Will they convert some employees entirely to remote working?
  • Are all employees coming back at full capacity, and if so, within what timeframe?
  • Is a hybrid approach being considered?
  • Is it possible to maintain their corporate culture and manage accountability during the process?
