Topic:  Driving Digital Dexterity for the Freedom of Work

– What do our Future Workplaces Look Like? 
By Speaker: Safi Obeidullah 

We believe that rebuilding the economy and ensuring the survival of business is possible through the redefining and evolution of ‘work’: from the relationship between employee and employers to the way we work and how we work. Rather than rebuild according to the old ways of thinking, we have believed - long before this crisis supercharged change - that old behaviours and habits based on centuries old definitions of work need to change. Redefining work, recalibrating employees experience and reimagining how to work have been achieved by the catalyst of a crisis. Our thinking has been proven right by the experiences of many, but there is so much more to come.

The Freedom of Work: to empower a new employee evolution that drives greater opportunity, productivity and growth for a united goal of business success.

Fireside Chat: Discover the new normal of business continuity
