Transitioning From an Office to a Remote-First Company
The coronavirus pandemic undoubtedly expedited the popularity of remote work. Companies that thought remote work was a temporary shift are now planning on making it permanent.
However, transitioning from offices to remote work (or having a hybrid of the two) takes much more than video conferencing and chat tools. In this session, Formstack CEO Chris Byers will share his experience transitioning from a small office team in 2006 to a remote-first company with more than 230 employees located around the globe.
Attendees will learn from some of Chris’ hard lessons and biggest challenges, and how he keeps employees engaged and connected. They’ll learn what has led to Formstack’s culture consistently being recognized, including Inc. magazine’s recent Best Workplaces for 2020.
