Back to Work Summit
May 27, 2020 at 9:00am EST

COVID-19 has shut down large parts of the Canadian economy and forced employers and employees to adjust how they work. In late May, Talent Canada and OHS Canada explored practical tactics and best practices for leaders to redesign workspaces and welcome staff back post-pandemic.

This virtual summit featured a mix of live and on-demand sessions, with exclusive bonus materials available post-event. While the live panel discussions are over, you can view all of the sessions on demand now at your convenience. Registration is free.
