Remote Working: The Office of the Future

8 months later and remote working is the new-norm; video calls have replaced meetings, morning workouts have replaced early trains, and the office set-up is just a distant memory. How has your organisation coped with the continuation of the new technologies and challenges that Covid-19 has created? Has your infrastructure held up better than expected? Have you experienced an increase in phishing attacks? Does your team still feel like a team?

With many organisations now starting to open offices under new social distancing guidance, what will the impact be on business continuity? Is your organisation ready for a shift to the remote virtual desktop? Is this the office of the future?

In this episode of Deskflix: Remote Working II our industry leaders will discuss the biggest challenges they’ve faced so far, the tools and tactics that allowed them to succeed, and their strategy for the imminent future.

The agenda and booking information will be available soon. For any queries, please contact Vanessa Aguilar .
