Flexible, adaptable and virtual work environments: How to successfully transition and position your organization and valued employees

September 26, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am

Traditional methods of working in cubicles from 9 to 5 are far less effective and competitive, especially as generations shift, business markets expand and real-estate costs increase. More and more businesses are now exploring the benefits of flexible, adaptable and virtual work environments. When implemented well, organizations see increased access to international talents, greater productivity, lower expenses and a revival in employee engagement and loyalty.
