TCSHRM June 2020 Intl SIG Program: Work Anywhere – Necessity now, future differentiator

For years, companies have been fighting to attract and retain top talent, and sometimes this means securing talent from a different market than where the company is located. More companies have been offering the “work anywhere” option in an effort to differentiate themselves as an employer. While this was becoming a hot topic prior the global coronavirus pandemic, in this session, we will address how the landscape has changed dramatically in light of the pandemic forcing so many employees to work outside of their typical workplace. We will also examine the different flexible working options (work from home, work from another state, work from another country) and their compliance implications (tax, immigration, etc.).

During this virtual session, you will:

1. Learn which types of employment situations are typically considered “Work Anywhere” and which are not as well as the varying degrees to which different organizations leverage a Work Anywhere approach

2.  Gain insights into how effective remote work can be enabled through technology, policy, and culture; what types of organizations were commonly utilizing these approaches by choice prior to the COVD-19 pandemic; and why an organization may want to offer this flexibility when possible

3. Understand the most common compliance considerations and inherent risks related to allowing an employee to work outside of the traditional office
