Employers have weathered the COVID-19 pandemic with a variety of short-term, innovative solutions designed to keep doors open, staff engaged and productivity at respectable levels.

But as the dust settles, leaders are taking a step back and exploring longer-term strategies to respond to employee demands, capitalize on best practices and take advantage of proven technologies to create the best organizations.

There is unparalleled appetite among business leaders for cutting-edge HR practices that will enable critical areas like collaboration, engagement, retention and innovation.

On April 15, Talent Canada is hosting a must-attend virtual event to provide trusted and reliable information to these leaders as they conduct due diligence on how to redesign their workplaces.

If the fallout of the novel coronavirus has taught us anything, it is the normal we knew is gone, and there’s a new future to prepare for.

The pandemic may very well be ushering in Work 4.0 — a broad concept conceptualizing what the future world of work will look like by 2030 as a result of widespread digitalization.

KEYNOTE: The future of leadership

Speaker: Zabeen Hirji, Executive Advisor Future of Work at Deloitte
