Course Description

The current employment trends (i.e. quiet quitting. The great resignation) are telling us a story. A story, that employees need greater support to be able to thrive and be productive at work. A flexible workplace is one great way to address these concerns. But what does a flexible workplace that meets employee needs really look like? What are the benefits and challenges of flexible workplaces?

Join us in a lively panel discussion with globally renowned experts to learn practical ways to support a healthy, high performing workplace through flexibility. And perhaps - you may even be inspired to take action and implement one of the practices that will be discussed!
