Join us for a 3 part series which will address the challenges to remote work from the point of view of employers, employees and cybersecurity with a specific focus on the implications for the banking and financial sector.

Professionally, 2020 highlighted the precarity of jobs, the disparity between remote-enabled teams, those whose jobs could not be done virtually, and those whose companies were ill-equipped for the transition. During this three-part series we will break down three facets of the future of work, from three unique perspectives: employers, employees and a focus on cybersecurity. Each panel discussion will convene innovators who are actively challenging the status quo to build the workplace of tomorrow, today.



➤ Part 1, Wednesday, February 3rd: Employers 

Key topics: Retention schemes, maintaining company culture, productivity gains, legal and financial implications of a remote workforce.

➤ Part 2, Thursday, February 18th: Employees

➤ Part 3, Thursday, March 4th: Cybersecurity
