A message to the WORKTECH network: keep the channels open

Faced with the unimagined challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic, WORKTECH is stepping up its online Academy delivery of thought-leadership content at a time of great uncertainty and change

These are difficult and unprecedented times for the global economy and the workplace industry as coronavirus tightens its grip. Every day more restrictions are being placed on travel, work and gatherings as people are asked to self-isolate to combat the virus.

In common with every other organisation, WORKTECH is moving at speed to a new model to address the fast-changing conditions on the ground. We have postponed this spring’s WORKTECH events scheduled for Tokyo, Copenhagen, Sydney and Auckland. Our popular live conference series is now paused.

However, we are committed to continuing to bring you the best knowledge and insights about the future of work and workplace, as office buildings empty and organisations adapt rapidly to implement flexible and remote working.

Our online WORKTECH Academy platform will continue to bring our global WORKTECH community together around shared interests, evidence and ideas.

Stepping up coverage

We intend to step up our coverage on the Academy platform in the coming weeks with webinars, case studies, technology guides, virtual presentations and virtual events to fill the knowledge gap for our 10,000-plus community of Academy members, WORKTECH attendees, speakers, partners and sponsors.

We believe that the live WORKTECH conference series will come back stronger than ever in the autumn once the danger is over.

Our team will be working flat out in the meantime to deliver thought leadership content about the future of work and workplace online so that you can keep the wheels turning in anticipation of better days ahead.

Stay safe and stay tuned to what is in store.
