Panel: Virtual Connection and Culture
Don’t let remote work erode your organizational culture, social bonds, and connection to purpose. As the months of working from home wear on, many organizations are beginning to worry their people are feeling disconnected from the company’s culture and sense of purpose. In this panel discussion, Kate Lister, president of Global Workplace Analytics, moderates a conversation with remote work pioneers Mohammed Chahdi, Director of HR Operations at Dell and Amy Freshman, Senior Director of HR at ADP, to learn how they’ve tackled these challenges in their organizations.
