At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, global workforces experienced a sudden and forced shift into remote work. That experience dramatically shifted expectations and realities for office jobs around the world. However, more recent shifts in the economy have resulted in less labour shortages in certain industries, and employers are now increasingly requesting that workers return into the office, at least on part-time basis. In this webinar, our expert speakers will explore the rights and needs of both employers and employees when it comes to remote work, and some of the key factors that employers must consider when assessing work location, including:
  • Productivity
  • Finances
  • Employee Morale
  • Labour Market & Attrition
  • Legalities
  • Workplace Accommodations
