About this Event –
Learn from industry experts about the future of our workplaces and how to simply and practically follow the guidelines to adapt and reopen your office – regardless of your company’s size, budget and resources.
Specially prepared for small business owners with smaller offices, this webinar series looks at the current state of the workplace after the past year, and positions this disruption as an opportunity to rethink the workplace by taking what we’ve learned to create more flexible, diverse and distributed workplaces and company cultures.
