Most organizations will emerge from the pandemic with a new attitude toward remote work but few will adopt an all in-office or all remote strategy. In this session, Kate Lister, President of Global Workplace Analytics will explore the possibilities and pitfalls of a mixed remote/in-office work model with Dr. Sally Augustin, Principal at Design With Science, and Terri Griffith, the Keith Beedie Chair in Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business and Vice President of ISSIP.
