Financial Services face dual challenges addressing the pandemic – How to enable remote and office work for employees while managing a safe environment for clients and employees. We call this time the ‘Never Normal,” and Avanade can help. 

Join us for an interactive event where we’ll discuss the innovative solutions to Respond, Reset and Renew during the ‘Never Normal’. We’ll also learn about the 5 S’s (See, Swirl, Sniff, Sip and Savor) with a guided tasting hosted by The Sommelier Company.

You will learn about: 

  • Coming back to the office
  • The new office culture
  • Transitioning to a Hybrid Workforce

And of course, how to select the right wine for you! 

Register by January 15th to ensure we have time to ship your tasting kit before the event. If you would like to join us, but prefer not to participate in the wine tasting, you may select an olive oil tasting kit.

Banking in 2021: Preparing for the “Never Normal”

2020 fast-tracked a 360-degree transformation in offices worldwide. While the much-awaited new year has finally come, it will not equal an instant “back to normal” for most companies.

As financial leaders plan their return to work, they rely heavily on data for the management of the areas relative to safety, security, work-life balance, and compliance with local regulations. Real-time development of applications in a low or no-code environment is also necessary to prepare for the new office culture. Furthermore, with the current circumstances proving a greater need for flexibility and location-independence, banking professionals consider adopting a hybrid workforce model that enables seamless employee experience beyond physical barriers.

  • How can data support a triumphant return to the office?
  • What steps can banks take to ensure a smooth transition to the different upcoming work environment?
  • What will the hybrid workforce of 2021 look like?
