      This session will focus on our new normal post Pandemic. One of the positive things about 2020 is that organizations embraced (no other choice) working from home or remote work. Some organizations have stated “Our Employees can Work from Anywhere Permanently”! That sounds great on a press release but what is the real impact on Total Rewards. Now your leaders want the ability to recruit talent nationally or globally? We will discuss questions to ask? Compliance challenges? Legal Entities issues? And how to help your leaders manage this new reality! Can your Marketing Leader really work from Puerta Vallarta? And what is the impact to base pay, bonus and equity grants in the future! We will discuss approaches to address these type of challenges as we get ready to return to the office!
