2020 has been a year in which businesses have shown strength, resilience and pivoted the pandemic by embracing flexible home working arrangements. With the introduction of the vaccine in many countries, employers are considering returning to office working.

Rachel Hill, Partner and Head of Employment at Hadef & Partners, will highlight key priorities for employers to facilitate a safe and successful return to the office.
