HYBRID WEBINAR | Current work organisation challenges – managers' expectations versus employees' expectations

21 September 2021 | 10 am to 12 pm | Free–of–charge

The event is addressed to HR Directors, Boards of Directors, managers managing employees working remotely, as well as heads of legal departments looking for legal solutions to stay on remote working for longer, not just covid time.

We will focus on the latest trends related to the management boards’ need to get employees back to the office as soon as possible and, at the same time, the expectations of employees who want to still be able to work remotely in the largest possible timeframe.
