New Ways of Working

Wednesday, 15 September 2021 | 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM AEST | Online

Embedding innovation and adaptation

In the past year, we saw a global pandemic completely shift every aspect of everyday life, including work. Remote working arrangements tested the practicality of traditional management processes and put the spotlight on the limitations of legacy IT systems.

To succeed with overcoming the challenges of new ways of work, HR professionals need to lead their organisations in adapting their management and operational practices to accommodate onsite and remote employees.

Join us at the complimentary ‘New Ways of Working’ virtual event that will equip attendees with ideas and strategies on how to increase organisational agility, streamline processes and adapt to new ways of working.

Key Takeaways

A must-attend event for public sector organisations looking to:

Develop proactive approaches to enable organisational efficiency in a shifting environment

Improve existing systems, policies and processes to facilitate future ways of work
