flexibility@work 2021: embracing change.

The world of work is evolving by the minute. Are you prepared to stay ahead of today's dynamic developments in a climate of uncertainty and rapid-fire change?

What started out as a public health crisis has mutated into a broader economic crisis that has impacted each of us in very different ways. The global pandemic has fundamentally changed how we live, work and play. Employers have redefined the workplace, workers have adjusted to new ways of working in the ‘new normal’ and families have learned to live and work in the same space. There are many challenges ahead of us, and some of the solutions can be best found by studying the events that brought us here.
