Moving Past the Virtual Happy Hours to Build Engaging Hybrid Work Cultures (Toronto, In Person)


It's safe to say hybrid is here to stay!
In our last member survey 99% of respondents said they offer at least partial or fully remote work to their employees. So how do we continue to create an engaging work culture? 

Join us for our first Tech and People Network Live event in Toronto!  

We'll share what we're hearing from our members and facilitate a lively panel discussion on what works and what doesn't!  

You'll have the chance to share your thoughts and experiences as we connect over food and drinks before and after the panel. We can't wait to chat with you in real life!

Special thank you to ScaleHR and Barley for supporting TAP's first Toronto event and to HIGHLINE Beta for offering their space.
