LeClair & Associates Workplace Seminar: Lessons Learned as we Look Ahead



The world of work has evolved once more - with key developments following closely behind the global pandemic; a shift in societal preferences and the general approach to work; as well as the ever-increasing influence of technology in our daily lives and how we interact with one another as colleagues, and across the globe.

The shake-up of workplace management simply continues and is ushering in renewed opportunities, fresh legal obligations and ultimately, demands from us all a renewed consciousness in our approach to workplace issues, collaboration and people management. 

Please join us in breaking down the lessons learned from 2022, discovering solutions, uncovering risks and ultimately ensuring that your workplace is equipped for 2023.
