COVID: Now What?
November 17 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pmFree
For most companies and organizations, the COVID-19 pandemic changed every aspect of businesses, putting emerging management, hiring, and traditional workspace trends in a pressure cooker. Adjustments were made on a dime, and now that we’re almost 18 months past the initial shutdown, we no longer wonder about going “back to normal” but about what the “new normal” looks like.
We’ve assembled a panel of three experts to help you navigate not only changes in work practices and employee expectations, but also what companies are learning about how to be more effective and attractive employers.
Join us at:
BankPlus at The District
1200 Eastover Drive, Suite 300

Masks required for unvaccinated guests.
