02 Dec Episode 28: Coming Back Stronger Part I: What Should Companies Do Now to Come Back Stronger After the Pandemic?
This is episode 1 of a special 4-part special series of Work and the Future called Coming Back Stronger sponsored by Microsoft. We are still fighting this pandemic but we are also seeing light at the end of the tunnel. But how are we going to come back? Can we come back stronger? Some organizations can and will, and now is the time to plan for that: to get ready for a world that is not exactly like the one we left, particularly when it comes to the workforce.
To kick off the series we are joined y by Jason Brommet who is Modern Workplace Lead at Microsoft Canada. We talk about workplace policies and what they should look like so that we can get to a place where we want to be post-pandemic, and to be stronger than we when we started.
