Optimizing Remote Work For The New Normal

A panel of CXOs, for CXOs of the future.

What types of new concepts are coming to light as more teams go remote? Head of Remote didn’t exist until 2020, but Hopin’s team has already scaled from 30 to 200+ remote employees in 12 months by hiring for the role. More tools are catering to async style of communication, which Amir Salihefendic believes will transform remote teams.

How do CXOs adapt and optimize in accordance with the latest trends in remote work?
