20th September 2022, 08:30-10:00 CET

The checklist of the CFO is as vast and varied as it is fickle—some things have understandably been placed on the backburner. With the introduction of the hybrid work model there was a clear divide in belief regarding its longevity, severely impacting the quality of subsequent strategies. The change of pace was echoed by the established importance of the digital CFO, forcing many to take inventory of the maturity of their own digitalization practices.

In this episode you will gain invaluable insights on how to check off some of the old and embrace the new. Discrepancies in approaches to prevailing work models and digital efforts can leave some of you at a severe disadvantage; let us level the playing field and give you all that strategic boost you need.

HERE TO STAY – FINDING FINANCIALLY SOUND STRATEGIES FOR THE HYBRID WORK MODEL
Leif Denti, PhD in Innovation Psychology, Göteborgs Universitet

When placed in isolation, working remotely became the new norm. As society began reopening, some ventured back to the workplace while others remained in their homes, and as a result the hybrid work model was established. After trying it on, many have realized that if the pros are to outweigh the cons, long-term strategies need to be established to maintain structure, morale, discipline, and communication, for an otherwise divided workforce.

Fortify your strategies and accept that this model is here to stay. Listen to Leif Denti as he addresses common challenges and constructive angles of approach to manage them to improve motivation, productivity, and mental well-being.

Sharpen your ears and take notes, as this session is all about getting past some of the last hurdles of digital transformation. Matthias Gieschen will put your efforts into perspective as he highlights the human roadblock in the path to reaching your digital potential.
