Grow your workplace versatility

Many people have had to adapt to new ways of working over the last two years, with the pandemic accelerating the transition to a ‘virtual workplace’. It is said that this has improved the work-life balance for many – but has this come at the cost of a traditional office culture and the ability to build connections between colleagues? In this webinar, our panel explore this topic and discuss how to grow your workplace versatility.
