Virtual Fireside Chat: The Next Era of Work

On-Demand | 🕒 45 minutes

The COVID-19 pandemic forced accelerated change and improvisation through stale and outdated workforce policies. Remote work policies, communication structures and childcare policies all had to be quickly established. Leaders were forced to create structures that allow employees to remain productive and collaborate virtually while also remaining inclusive. It forced organisations to recognise that a more long term hybrid model of working might be more of the norm than the exception going forward to retain and attract top talent.

In an exclusive Fireside Chat with David Plink (CEO of Top Employers Institute) and Kevin Oakes (CEO of i4cp), presented the findings of the i4cp report: From Cube to Cloud: The Next Era of Work.

Discussion Topics:

  • Return to the office or remote work? A discussion on the hybrid model of working.
  • CEOs weighing in on the decision to work remotely.
  • Post pandemic talent exodus.
  • How organisations can collaborate remotely as virtual teams
