Event Details

Enabling your workers to fulfill their tasks without having to come to the office is getting increasingly common with the emergence of new digital technologies. As work-life balance is becoming a more important issue for employees, the companies are feeling additional pressure to introduce teleworking and flexible working policies. And with the ongoing coronavirus outbreak the businesses are left with no choice but to adopt remote working arrangements.

How businesses and customers see remote work in Japan and Korea and what are the peculiar challenges that they are facing? What can prevent companies from introducing more flexible working systems? Will coronavirus outbreak become the driver of more widespread adoption of remote working or will companies go back to business-as-usual when the crisis is over?

Join us as we discuss the realities of telework in Japan and Korea at our special webinar on Thursday, March 12 at 16:00 Tokyo time.
