Returning to Work in the 'New Normal'

Presented by the AustCham People Forum

While the majority of the world remains in strict lockdown in efforts to overcome Covid-19, Hong Kong has begun its journey to begin to transition the workforce back into office and into the “New Normal” workplace. All organisations are facing the challenge of how to transition their people back into office smoothly and safely, and what to expect and prepare for in market response.

The Chamber’s People Forum bring you this engaging seminar to bring you diverse perspectives and updates on what businesses should consider in the current Return to Work.

A highly experienced and qualified panel will provoke a great discussion - China is a couple months’ ahead of the world in the transition to “New Normal”, and Mark Gilbraith and Johnny Yu (PwC) will share the successes and challenges faced in China’s return to “New Normal”, and Lauren Pincott (Teneo) will share from a HK perspective how different organisations, including Teneo, are approaching the Return.
