Most Albertans and businesses have had to adjust to operating remotely, as working from home has increased substantially over the last year. But what about those working in positions that require being on the job site, unable to accomplish their duties or tasks remotely or in a home office?
In this webinar, PwC’s thought leaders will share insights based on findings from their field worker study. This study takes the pulse of Canadian field workers—full or part-time employees who pre-pandemic spent most if not all of their workday in a non-office setting and are employed by a larger company or organization. The survey reveals their perceptions of the potential for technology to improve their job, the impact of the pandemic on their well-being and their organization’s effectiveness in adapting to the disruption.
Plus, PwC will explore the impacts of COVID-19 on workers in several key industries in Alberta including Energy, Education, Retail, Healthcare, Manufacturing, and more.
Please confirm your attendance by Monday, May 17 @ 4 PM.
We will be using the Zoom meeting platform for the webinar. A link to join will be sent out to all registrants 12-24 hours prior to the webinar via email.
