Watch Now

Addressing the demands of a mobile, virtual and stay-at-home workforce is not a new topic. Hiring the best talent – regardless of whether or not they reside in proximity to company facilities – is a competitive reality for many organisations. But the global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has suddenly amplified interest in this trend at companies large and small around the world for existing staff as well.

Many firms, for a variety of reasons, have been slower to embrace advances in technology to support a non-office dwelling staff. Until now.

During this webinar we will discuss:

  • Should companies consider software that is “free”? What about WhatsApp and WeChat? 
  • Should regulated firms reconsider their policies on restricting access to features of their existing collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams, Slack and Zoom to ensure their staff are productive while working remotely?
  • And how to do this in a compliant manner
