Office Optional: Merging Culture, Technology and Remote Work
Join us on June 11 at 11 a.m. EDT for a webinar where we’ll talk about how to maintain your culture and productivity along with the technology to use as you continue working remote.
The initial shock of the rapid shift to a virtual work environment has started to wear off for many, and leaders are now faced with decisions about how to ensure the ongoing safety of their employees while maintaining productivity and profitability.
Understanding the decisions they make can impact the culture of the organization and their ability to operate effectively, business and technology leaders have been faced with questions they’ve never had to face before. One of those is how to help employees communicate and collaborate effectively.
During this live webinar, thought leaders from Centric Consulting and Synthomer (formerly OMNOVA Solutions) will share perspectives about how organizations are supporting their corporate culture while enabling employees to communicate and collaborate effectively with solutions like Microsoft Teams.
Topics we plan to discuss include:
Perspectives and guidance on how organizations can (and are) making the transition to a remote workforce
- How Microsoft 365, and specifically Microsoft Teams, can be used as a platform for enabling remote work and supporting your corporate culture
- Insight from a CIO about the opportunities and challenges of a remote workforce
We will conclude the webinar with a Q&A session, allowing participants to ask specific questions relevant to their current remote workforce experience.
