BRCC, with the support of AHK Romania, is delighted to invite to our upcoming webinar on workforce transformation on 26th of November, starting with 16.00!

This year has taught us a lot about the digital transformation and especially about workforce transformation. In a dynamic and effective business environment, companies can’t afford to waste time, so remote working has become a normality. This is why workforce transformation is an  area of interest for companies and institutions. Effective workforce will always be defined by the company’s tools, motivation and safety.

Join us for an interactive webinar where you will learn more about this year’s changes regarding workforce & digital transformation and some prospects for next year.
