Supporting Flexibility and Inclusion at Work

Our next Empower Leadership Event takes place on the 7th July 1 – 2pm with some fabulous speakers talking about the future of flexibility and inclusion.

With a massive and unexpected shift in working patterns for most, leaders and managers have had to quickly grapple with best practices around flexible working and how to make a virtual team feel included and supported when they are juggling many different hats and schedules.

We will talk about the future of flexible working for salesforce customers and partners. What the impact has been and what will be the ‘new normal’ might now.

We are inviting guests to share their own experiences on the webinar so please feel free to contribute.
