Short Workshop:  Remote and flexible workforce
Detailed Agenda

Remote and flexible workforce (CSG Short Workshop)

Home? Hub? Hybrid? Now that campuses are opening up again, what will work look like? Surveys show that employees appreciate their new-found flexibility (and don't want to give it up). Are IT organizations going to be back in person? Can employees live out of state? How flexible should we be? This session will be an exploration of the models schools are exploring for a remote and flexible workforce.
