Startups Going Remote: Evaluating and Navigating the Shift to a Permanently Hybrid or Fully Distributed Workforce

  • This event is archived.

As the Delta variant continues to surge across the country, many startups are grappling with whether to bring employees back to the office or continue with a hybrid or fully distributed workforce permanently. On the one hand, office space can be expensive, and in-person interaction can foster creativity and collaboration. On the other hand, workers are demanding increased flexibility and rethinking how they want to live their lives post-pandemic.

Should startups make hybrid or remote work more permanent? What factors are relevant to this decision, and what are the pros and cons of each approach? What are the logistical, legal and technical challenges facing startups that shift to permanent remote work, and how can startups overcome these obstacles? Join a distinguished panel of experts to explore how startups can best navigate the tax, HR, payroll, legal, cultural and other implications of the shift to a permanently hybrid or fully distributed workforce.
