Participants will also have the opportunity to pose other topics and questions during the event.

Topics we will discuss include (but are not limited to):

  • Enabling the workforce for flexible, agile remote work environment
  • Long term work from home plans and office design
  • Recruiting strategies and partnerships for agile recruiting
