We’ve been hearing a lot about how some of the large tech companies will enable their employees to stay remote, yet, at the same time, many businesses will be heading back to the office soon, and it won’t be the same as before. What do organizations need to do to support a hybrid workforce? What are some of the new considerations to consider as the ‘digital first’ workplace becomes the norm? Have your corporate policies, technology, and office space been re-designed or modified to accommodate the new normal? In this panel, seasoned leaders will share their answers to those questions. 

12:00 pm ET - What a Connected Canada looks like post COVID-19 (Alex Benay, Partner in Digital and Infrastructure, Government and Healthcare, KPMG)

Alex will discuss where Canada needs to invest in order to make the leap from an analogue country trying to use technology, to a fully digital society in light of COVID. Canadians everywhere should expect tele-medecine, virtual education, but core national and provincial components are missing in order to achieve this new reality. Alex will identity these gaps and what various jurisdictions are doing to address them.
