Natural Evolution: Thriving Hybrid Workplaces
From April 19-21, a community of transportation, HR, Facilities, and Operations professionals came together (virtually) during Commute.org’s three-day Annual Symposium for 2021, Natural Evolution: Thriving Hybrid Workplaces. We have learned much in the past year about our interconnectedness, and where we work is no exception. Planning for the future commutes of our employees will be an interdepartmental undertaking, and so we put together a line up of speakers who took us upstream to the latest insights on where workplaces are headed with the understanding that these considerations will at some point make their way to how we plan for an evolution in commuting.
