Remote work is here to stay. It’s that simple. It’s not a novelty anymore; it’s not something that a few businesses or verticals are doing. It’s the reality of the today’s workplace, whether that’s a flexible model, permanent remote workers, or a hybrid situation. Many businesses have seen extremely high levels of success with remote working in the past two years, yet others have struggled. This session will discuss how to be one of the successful ones and actually increase productivity over traditional models. Having the right tools is a big part, of course, but there are other elements to a remote/hybrid business strategy that ensure the tools are effective in driving success, including education, support, access, and corporate mindset. This session discusses the kinds of strategies successful companies have adopted, the pitfalls others have encountered, and how to effectively transition to and promote a healthy, productive model, regardless of what that looks like in your business.

DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) isn’t new – it’s been around for 60 years, since the birth of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action in the 1960s. During the past few years, though, it has come into greater focus than ever due to cultural awareness, demographic shifts, and current events. In addition to addressing those issues, DEI and Allyship initiatives also improve the bottom line. McKinsey reports that the most diverse companies outperform their less diverse counterparts by as much as 36%. This session will discuss not only discuss the “Why” of DEI and Allyship, and their positive impact on corporate culture, hiring, and business outcomes, but also the “How,” drawing success stories from companies that have developed and implemented DEI and Allyship programs.
