Leadership and Learning Continue at the 2020 Global Workforce Symposium

In case you missed it, there’s still much to discuss and learn across all sectors of the industry, with the Symposium giving industry leaders the chance to gather and point to where work is going.

Yesterday, the all-virtual Global Workforce Symposium continued with a day filled with peer-to-peer connection, engaging educational sessions and even time for collective relaxation for the workforce mobility industry. In case you missed it, there’s still much to discuss and learn across all sectors of the industry, with the Symposium giving industry leaders the chance to gather and point to where work is going.

Following the morning’s networking hour, the day began with a set of educational breakout sessions. Attendees could learn from the host of HGTV’s House Hunters how relocation works in the reality tv setting, or learn about effective leadership in times of crisis from varying aspects of the workforce mobility industry. A panel on the next 100 days of U.S. immigration discussed what is likely to change and what will remain the same, examining the implications for both foreign nationals and organizations. Attendees could also discover domestic moves outside of the U.S., focusing on Canada, China, and India, learn about employee sentiment analysis, or even how schools have adjusted learning in the new normal.

Among the many things we’ve learned this year is the importance of mental health, and attendees could practice their meditation skills with a relaxation hour sponsored by Topia. Following was even more educational breakout sessions, exploring such topics as tackling unconscious bias, the end-to-end employee experience in the virtual world, and sustainability in workforce mobility programs. Attendees could also learn about executing a social impact strategy, and how agents, brokers, and relocation directors can go the extra mile for their clients before ending the day with a happy hour featuring a cocktail session from an industry leading mixologist, sponsored by Stewart Title Relocation Services.
