Re-Energizing Teams in a New Environment
The pandemic has introduced us to a new work environment. Our talent is our biggest asset and while most companies have adapted quickly to the new normal of the remote workplace through virtual connection, there has been a disconnect among some employers and employees leaving them feeling anxious and disengaged. Our speakers will share their personal insights on how to develop a conducive workplace through meaningful inclusion.
