|Webinar Invitation: CLOcking In: The Morning Employment Chatter|
Christopher & Lee Ong is happy to host our second series of employment webinar where we will share our thoughts on dealing with how employers can manage misconduct and poor performing employees amidst the uncertainty and issues of security of tenure. Join us for these interactive sessions where we will address your burning employment questions from a Malaysian law perspective.
As the pandemic begins to ease, many companies are planning a new combination of remote and on-site working, a hybrid virtual model
in which some employees are on premises, while others work from home. The new model promises greater access to talent, increased productivity for individuals and small teams
, lower costs, more individual flexibility, and improved employee experiences
To increase your post-pandemic readiness and succeed in the new world, we have identified five strategic priorities to unlock business transformation: Digital acceleration, Workforce transformation, Consumer acumen, Cost management, and Supply chain reinvention. As we head down a path of uncertainty, the risk of sitting tight and not investing in transformation will decrease company growth or possibly result in lost market share.
