‘Remote is here to stay.’ Yes, you read that right.
We’ve officially entered the remote decades this 2020.
During this novel COVID 19 pandemic outbreak, companies have scrambled to institute new work from home policies. They are also reinventing themselves in this quest.
Fortunately, the crisis has highlighted critical gaps in the way we work. And now we’re breaking the fourth wall in the workspace, acknowledging how remote has to be considered a part of the long term strategy. Not just short term policy.
Now, the focus is shifting towards efficiency instead of hours.
We’re moving to a model where we have more flexibility to decide our work schedules, operating when we’re most productive rather than the fixed 9 to 5. This transition of organizing work around life is huge and not without major implications.
To keep a steady hand on the wheel during this pandemic, remote conferences can help you with the transition on how to guide your organization back to normalcy once the crisis winds down.
Here are a few remote conferences helping the crowds catch up to the trends.
