How do you get staff back to the office and want to be there? It’s a question rattling an industry with split opinion on the future of work.
The challenge facing Wall Street banks and mid-market investment shops alike is this: employers want in-office workweeks of four to five days to strengthen connectivity and collaboration. Employees want far less, pointing to first-hand experience that remote work is both convenient and productive.
No one is sure what comes next, but the sense is that those who get it right earn a new competitive advantage in retaining talent, boosting client relationships, and optimizing collaboration workflows.
The truth is there is no right answer. Each firm will chart its own path. But best practices are now emerging.
In this special collaboration between Poly and Microsoft, two leading visionaries on the future of work in Financial Services, we will walk you through how offices are changing to give employees a reason to want to come in. We will discuss how technology is providing remote workers ‘meeting equality’ with on-site staff. And we will provide a strategy for balancing new employee demands with firm needs.
Discussion topics will include:
FSI Global Leader, Microsoft
Global Business Development–Financial Services, Poly
Americas Head of Microsoft Alliances Sales, Poly
