Flexible work: Overcoming the 7 challenges to build a connected, engaged team

Jo Alilovic, Director, 3D HR Legal

“Flexibility is here to stay. Those who reject it may not be.” Adam Grant.

How is your business planning to adapt to the new demand for flexible working  We’ve all heard about ‘The Great Resignation’ and that hybrid is the new norm, but how do we make it work long term?

It’s not enough to hand out laptops and sign up to Zoom. Success with hybrid/remote staff requires careful consideration and planning. During this presentation, Jo Alilovic will discuss the 7 key challenges in building a connected, engaged home-based team and strategies/tactics for overcoming them. She will share her own personal stories from running a virtual law firm for the last 6 years and some of the case studies she has included in her new book, ‘Homeforce’.

You will leave the presentation clear on what your own challenges are, with concrete steps for creating your own action plan.
