The World’s Largest
Remote Work Conference Just got Better

GLOBAL REMOTE DAY '21

Join Us on 23rd June 2021 for a Full-Day Virtual Gathering to Understand the "How's Remote Work"

Lessons from Twitter Airmeet Dribbble Lenovo Salesforce Talentboard Asana Netflix Atlassian Buffer

“Office centricity is over.”

When videos and chat screens replaced workplace conversations, and somehow companies were still thriving, we knew that Tobi Lutke, CEO of Shopify, was onto something when he tweeted that a year ago.

Remote by choice or destiny, today, everybody wants to make it work for their org. And yet, success stories are like a members-only club, celebrated only by a handful of early adopters. Let’s change that. And learn from the leaders at organizations where best practices of remote work were sculpted, tested, and honed.
