Let’s face it, remote work is here to stay. According to a recent survey conducted by the US Chamber of Commerce, 36% of middle-market enterprises had remote employees in Q4 2021 who weren’t remote prior to COVID. Nearly half of the businesses surveyed claimed they provide permanent full-time remote work opportunities, with another 42% probing the possibility of going remote. It is clear that the future of work has set new standards. Only companies that give the flexibility and culture that the workforce expects will gain a significant and long-term competitive advantage, which is all the more critical in an extremely tight labor market that has tilted the power balance to employees for the foreseeable future. Whether you’re starting your own remote business, looking to scale your distributed team, or transitioning to a hybrid model of work, it is always better to learn from those who have succeeded.
We’re happy to announce that next week Multiplier is heading to Montreal for our first physical event. We are the headline sponsor for Running Remote which is the world’s largest remote conference happening on May 17-18, 2022 at Montreal, Canada. This is a dedicated conference in its fifth year that addresses the fundamental business challenges associated with remote and hybrid workplace transformation. The conference is designed to provide remote-first entrepreneurs and hybrid-team leaders with the information, relationships, and solutions they need to develop, manage, and lead remote teams to success.
We’ll be joined by the likes of Twitter, Slack, Zoom and McKinsey & Company to explore the future of remote working on the main stage, and what strategies are at play to future proof your business, whatever stage of growth you’re in. You can experience two jam-packed days with a super-star line up on two stages, an expo zone, ample networking sessions and satellite events over the two days. Industry experts will not only be discussing the ins and outs of building international teams, but the invaluable human benefits and opportunities that emerge when you expand globally.
On day 1 Lila MacLellan, Senior Reporter @ Quartz is doing a fireside interview virtually with Sagar Khatri, CEO and Co-founder of Multiplier at 9:00 AM (EST) during the opening ceremony where we’ll discuss all things Multiplier, why employing remotely helps create a more equal world and what the predictions are for the future of a remote working world.
On day 2, Drew Calin, Global Sales Director of Multiplier is going to be on the breakout stage – 10:10 – 11:00 EST, providing insights on how to save time and money while building your distributed workforce alongside a product showcase of Multiplier. We are particularly excited and look forward to all the inspiring conversations and meeting new people as we’ll have a booth located at #12. Our team will be doing demos of our product for guests attending virtually too.
Running Remote conference is highly flexible and the event is designed to run in a hybrid model where attendees can participate physically and virtually.
