Peer-to-Peer: Flexible Work Strategies

Hybrid work. Flex schedules. Asynchronous communication. Four-day workweeks. The post-pandemic workforce demands that we think of our work life in new and unexpected ways. But, what does it really mean for our organizations? What does it look like in practice? This interactive session aims to provide a platform for HR professionals to share their experiences, challenges, and best practices related to flexible work arrangements. Attorneys Beth Rattigan, John Maitland, and Alexa Clauss from DRM kick off this Sunday program to help us understand the landscape, consider legal implications, and facilitate peer discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from other HR leaders, gain insights, and gather practical strategies to successfully implement new flexible work policies.
